World Parkinson’s Day 2024

11. April 2024

Did you know that Parkinson’s disease is the fastest-growing brain disease? At the same time, Parkinson’s disease is so variable, almost no 2 individuals’ symptoms and progression are the same. That is why at mediri, we are working every day to improve the diagnosis and therapy of Parkinson’s disease using advanced MR Imaging and Focused Ultrasound techniques.

For more details, you can have a look at this publication on automatic planning of MR-guided transcranial focused ultrasound treatment or this review article on blood-brain barrier dysfunction imaging.

Clinical Trials in Germany

04. April 2024

We see a rapidly increasing need for medical imaging in clinical trials and in the development of standardized imaging biomarkers. In 2022, more than 1900 clinical trials were registered in Germany. In many of them, medical imaging is used in as a primary, quantitative and surrogate biomarker.

New AI developments across the healthcare industry, with radiology at the forefront, continue to increase the need for medical imaging core lab services.
As an Imaging CRO and Core Lab, we make your image-based clinical trials more efficient, faster and safer. This is especially important when it comes to multi-center studies that place high demands on comparability of image data.

Contact us to discuss our medical imaging solutions for reliable clinical trial results.

Symposium Mustervertragsklauseln 2.0

28. Februar 2024

Thank you for a great symposium in Frankfurt about clinical trial sample contracts 2.0 – Advancing implementation together. The symposium with 200 participants was jointly organized by (BVMA), Bundesverband der Pharmazeutischen Industrie, MFT Medizinischer Fakultätentag der Bundesrepublik Deutschland e.V., KKS-Netzwerk e. V. and the Verband Forschender Arzneimittelhersteller e.V. (VFA).

It was very enriching to receive new input and to have fruitful discussions. Perhaps just a small step, but an important one in making Germany more attractive as a place for clinical research.

tcFUS-control – Many thanks to our partners

06. Februar 2024

Many thanks to our partners from Universitätsklinik Bonn, INSIGHTEC, and Fraunhofer MEVIS for a great collaboration in the concluded project tcFUScontrol funded by ZIM. We aimed at developing an Advanced Therapy Control System for transcranial MR-guided Focused Ultrasound for Essential and Parkinson’s Tremor.

The consortium made progress in using Arterial Spin Labeling (ASL) MR images to measure the permeability of the blood brain barrier (BBB). Apart from that, a software tool for easier therapy planning computing the location of nerve fibre tracks in the brain based on Diffusion Tensor Imaging was developed.

DeepRAY – last year started

23. Januar 2024

The countdown is on: The final year of our DeepRAY project has begun. Together with our partners at Universitätsmedizin Mannheim we are working to integrate our WHITEBOX into the clinical workflow of routine abdominal CT scans. We will screen the patients for aortic aneurysms and dissections with AI-based algorithms (what else?).

The WHITEBOX enables easy and secure DICOM image transfer between the PACS and external server clusters for fast image analyses and notification of clinical staff.

First milestones are achieved: the WHITEBOX is a PACS node of the research PACS and retrospective data analysis can be performed easily. Now we are aiming to install our system in the clinic PACS for prospective evaluations.

The project DeepRAY is funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research.
