Software, Magnetic Resonance Imaging Study, Blood-Flow
Definition : Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study software designed to acquire, process, and archive data and images obtained during blood flow studies. This software usually works with MRI scanning systems and post-imaging workstations; it may also interact with devices used in the procedures, such as monitors, printers, contrast media injectors, and recorders. The software is intended to work only with one or a few models of MRI scanning systems and related devices, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. This also facilitates the processing and/or sending of data to and from hospital information systems and other (e.g., picture archiving and communication) workstations. Blood flow studies typically use MRI images to analyze blood vessel lumen, stenosis, and/or arterio-venous malformations. The software may or may not be available separate from the MRI equipment and may be updated and/or upgraded (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the equipment.
