Display of Images
Includes our unique standardization and normalization of whole body bone scans. Average count levels of the normal skeleton are calculated so the skeleton is always displayed with the same grey scale level, i.e. the images are not scaled to the maximum pixel value, which usually represents the bladder.
Pre-selection of hotspots
EXINI BSI pre-select hotspots using a complex mathematical method, instead of a simple threshold method.
This pre-selection of hotspots is based on artificial neural networks that have been trained using a large database of bone scans interpreted by top experts in the field.
Bone Scan Index / quantification
The Quantification Module includes calculation of the Bone Scan Index (BSI) Automatically calculates the BSI values, a measure that reflects the extent of skeletal involvement by tumor in whole body bone scans.
The BSI Report will by default include the bone scans of the latest study together with patient information, any written comments and information about the reporter. A list of BSI values for up to 8 studies is also included.
