CERCARE Perfusion

Cercare Medical

CERCARE Perfusion solves two problems - slow perfusion imaging post-processing and difficult-to-read perfusion maps that lack important information on brain tissue oxygenation which is an underlying factor in many neurological disorders. CERCARE Perfusion automates post-processing thus helping to improve radiology workflow and additionally provides unique maps of oxygen extraction and metabolism together with traditional perfusion maps.
