Medimaps Group *NEW PRODUCT*
Booth #: 434
Medimaps group is developing seamless solutions for clinical routine. Our core product, TBS iNsight, allows clinicians from a spine DXA image to quickly estimate bone micro architecture. In clinical practice, TBS significantly improves osteoporosis management in conjunction with BMD and clinical risk factors. In research, the patented TBS algorithm reanalyzes the changes in any gray-scale images of different skeletal sites (e.g. DXA, X-ray, CT) to evaluate bone fragility.
TRIP (TBS Research Investigation Platform): TRIP (TBS Research Investigation Platform) is a research tool based on a modified TBS iNsight® algorithm for investigational use only. It has been designed for specialists who are looking for estimating bone texture at different skeletal sites and from different image modalities. TRIP computes TBS values from images acquired with e.g. plain X-ray, C-arms, CT, QCT, pQCT, HRpQCT and microCT scanners (projected volume), DXA. Sites of e.g. spine, hip, proximal and distal femur, tibia, humerus or shoulders could be investigated. TRIP will help to enlarge the scope of structural imaging and will therefore contribute significantly to advance the bone field.
TBS iNsight™ - Software as a Service: You always have wanted access to the TBS iNsight™ software but are hesitating because of price issues? Medimaps group is now proposing an additional new financial solution based on yearly subscription model (SaaS – Software as a Service) which gives you full access to the latest version of TBS iNsight™ at an affordable price. The growing clinical evidence (more than 220 publications and 11 guidelines) coupled with the ability of this software to be seamlessly integrated into your daily workflow, make TBS an attractive and useful tool for physicians who want to improve patient management in osteoporosis.
