Challenges in therapy monitoring

86% of radiologists would like to increase tumor measurements – we show how

A survey in the American Journal of Radiology (issue 195:101-106) depicts today’s challenges in oncological therapy monitoring: Almost all of the approximately 300 participating radiologists confirmed the high importance of tumor measurement for therapy decisions. 86% would likely increase their tumor measurements, if optimized workflows and tools were established. Nevertheless, besides clinical trials, tumors are not always measured in clinical routine.

With mint Lesion™, we identified and addressed these challenges in time and consequently put effort in optimizing routine procedures. With efficient means, we put each single tumor measurement in context to patient, therapy, and therapy process. Only the combination of all available data can lead to high quality results and assures the comprehensiveness of therapy decisions.
