Our process

The NF Tumor Metrics Service offers web-based order entry and online multi-media results reporting for scan analyses. Lesions are tracked longitudinally and results are stored in the NF database on a secure website accessible by authorized clients.

Our streamlined data management process can transfer patient scans from DICOM CD via secure Internet connection from any site.

Quantitative measurement of MR imaging studies is performed on analysis-specific workstations. After scans are analyzed by trained image analysts, measurement results are reviewed and finalized by clinically based Harvard faculty radiologists.

Results are stored in an SQL database and posted on the NF Tumor Metrics secure website where clinicians can access annotated images, graphs, and numerical data to longitudinally track tumor burden.
