London, United Kingdom, 2017/09/27 - BTG plc, the global specialist healthcare company, has signed a three-year master service agreement with Mirada Medical Ltd, a global medical imaging software company - Mirada-Medical.com / BTG-IM.com. LSE: BTG
Mirada and BTG began working together in October 2015 to develop software solutions to optimise radioembolisation therapy with TheraSphere®. That collaboration resulted in Simplicit90Y™, a customised, easy-to-use dosimetry software that helps physicians to personalise treatment with 90Y therapies, such as TheraSphere®, for patients with liver cancer. The Simplicit90Y™ software received CE Mark Certification in Europe in October 2016.
The agreement announced today includes projects to further enhance the Simplicit90Y™ product and to support BTG’s growing portfolio of interventional medicine products. The companies plan to leverage Mirada’s advanced digital image processing technology to improve workflow and ensure accurate and consistent use of BTG’s market leading products.
Peter Stratford, Chief Technology Officer at BTG, said “We are pleased to be strengthening our relationship with Mirada. The Symplicit90Y™ software has proven the value of their imaging software in personalising treatment for patients, and we’re excited to be developing additional features. We’re also eager to deliver a bespoke solution to support our broader portfolio. Advanced imaging technology is crucial in helping physicians optimally treat patients using our minimally invasive therapies.”
Hugh Bettesworth, Chief Executive of Mirada Medical, said “Collaborating with BTG, a recognised leader in interventional medicine, helps bring our intuitive software to more clinicians, and to improve outcomes for more patients. Our companies have a shared belief in the power of image processing to improve and personalise treatment for a wide range of minimally invasive procedures.”
