26 Dec Software to aid brain surgery is goal of Milwaukee startup
Milwaukee, Wis. — The invention of three Medical College of Wisconsin radiology professors could help doctors look inside patients’ brains. Kyron Clinical Imaging Inc. received FDA clearance last week to market the software it’s developing, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported.
Kyron’s software would interpret the data from a magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, scanner. A sample image released by the company showed that it could present several different views of the data and highlight regions of the brain according to their function, or light up an area of the brain affected by a tumor as well as helping to determine what kind of tumor it is.
The founders are Edgar DeYoe, Kathleen Schmainda and John L. Ulmer. They hope to sell their BrainViewRx system to small hospitals and clinics that do not have their own medical imaging staff, and would also provide services such as training and image interpretation.
