Q-suite™ is a CE-marked proprietary software tool to convert quantitative SPECT and MR image datasets of QuiremSpheres® into 3D dose distributions. The 3D dose distributions may be used for image-based dosimetric verification of dose-to-tumor and dose-to-tissue after the QuiremSpheres® radioembolization procedure.
At Quirem Medical we believe that dosimetry is key to better understand the efficacy of radioembolization and potentially improve the therapy application. Although the distribution of QuiremSpheres® in the tissue can be visualized utilizing SPECT imaging or a specific type of MR imaging (gradient recalled echo), the full potential of the unique imaging features of QuiremSpheres® is only achieved when these images are converted into tissue absorbed radiation dose. For this reason, Q-Suite was developed.
Q-Suite provides dose calculations based on multi-slice MR images or 3D SPECT-CT images that were acquired during or after administration of holmium-166 microspheres. The output are 3D dose images that can be further evaluated by the user using other software that supports the DICOM RT standard.
The software ensures easy processing by offering a minimalistic user interface for image selection and information input and is equipped with automatic detection of suitable data. The “click one button” approach warrants a short learning course and prevents user induced errors. Previous processed data can be reloaded to enable fast reprocessing of the data using different input parameters
Q-Suite can be installed on a personal computer running Windows 7 or 10. Q-Suite supports the DICOM standard for images, and the DICOM RT standard for structure sets and dose results.
