IT’IS Foundation Releases MRIxViP V2.0

We are pleased to announce that IT’IS has released MRIxViP V2.0. The exposure libraries now incorporates the latest Virtual Population (ViP) models from IT’IS, thereby greatly improving patient coverage for any MRI exposure related analysis.

1903 MRIxViP mm

In addition to the eight anatomical phantoms already included in the V1.0 library, MRIxViP V2.0 now includes the Korean female model Yoon-sun, and three morphed models to extend population coverage: a slimmer Fats (BMI 29, down from 36), and two heavier Ellas (BMI 26 and 30, up from 22). We have also updated the exposure data for Fats based on the updated Fats V3.2.

The combination of the new anatomical phantoms, simulated with all birdcage variations, and imaging positions leads to a massive increase of precomputed radiofrequency (RF)-induced electromagnetic field distributions comprising terabytes of data and making the database even more representative of exposure in patients undergoing a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam. In combination with IMAnalytics, a powerful software that allows fully automated Tier 3 analysis of RF-induced local power deposition at the electrodes of implantable devices, the extended library facilitates the standardized, effective and comprehensive evaluation of potential risks from exposure, e.g. in patients with active or passive implants.

Customers who purchased the full MRIxViP V1.0 together with a Service & Maintenance contract will receive the new version MRIxViP V2.0 shortly. No workflow changes are necessary!
