Sirtex Medical, a manufacturer of targeted liver cancer therapies, announced on Wednesday, that it has collaborated with MIM Software Inc, a global provider of practical imaging solutions in the fields of radiation oncology, radiology, nuclear medicine, neuroimaging and cardiac imaging.

According to the terms of the contract, Sirtex's specialised sales teams in the United States, Europe and other key global markets are to offer MIM SurePlanTM LiverY90 software alongside the company's SIR-Spheres Y-90 resin microspheres to improve treatment precision for patients with hepatic tumours.

MIM SurePlan LiverY90 offers tools and post-treatment dosimetry for interventional radiologists and nuclear medicine physicians treating hepatic tumours with SIR-Spheres. The software is claimed to enable physicians to calculate the dose delivered by the microspheres to improve treatment decisions and patient care. The technology also includes CT, PET, SPECT and MRI scans simultaneously to deliver results on spheres deposition, coverage and absorbed dose, enabling physicians to make informed decisions faster about next steps.
