Digitization of Medicine
Mobile exchange of information enables patient-centered treatment approach
The use of digital methods is increasing in the medical area. Highly developed medical technology systems support surgeons during operations and
are already part of complicated operations and treatments. However, the interoperability of these systems and the exchange of important information are often not given.
"The communication of medical information is an elementary component of high-quality health care. (Source: Digitized Medicine)."
mRay provides mobile communication and visulaization of medical images including the networking of the medical staff. Flexible services for physicians, portable teleradiology, encrypted messaging, fast wound documentation, mobile ward rounds and much more. The aim of a patient-centred approach is to help patients to become more self-determined and self-confident during treatment - the patient as its expert on illness.
In cooperation with physicians of the urological department of the University Hospital Heidelberg, mbits develops an electronic patient information system. To inform patients during their stay at the hospital about upcoming appointments and postponements as well as to provide general information about the stay (meal plan, visiting hours etc.).

HoloMed: Promotion of innovative small and medium-sized enterprises in the field of AI
Augmented Reality in the operating theatre
The Federal Ministry of Education and Research published an article about our cooperation project HoloMed.
In cooperation with the project partners, the HoloMed glasses were developed as a flexible, mobile and cost-effective solution to improve the quality of ventricular puncture in neurological emergencies - for example in the case of a cerebral hemorrhage, a craniocerebral trauma or a stroke. Existing patient information, such as CT or MRI scans, were evaluated with machine learning methods analyzing their structure to display additional anatomy information of the patient. Faithful to the nebulous concept of marketing, the so-called AI generates information of puncture and angle to guide the catheter throughout surgery.
The complete article of the project HoloMed can be found on the page of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

How mRay protects data
To prophylactically exclude data leaks
Referring to the article Millions of unprotected patient data in the network of Bayerischer Rundfunk, we would like to inform you again how extensively mRay protects your data. The leaks mentioned in the report are unprotected PACS systems over the Internet. According to ARD Tagesschau these breakdowns were caused by importing CDs or by misconfigurations of the data-carrying computers. mRay is not affected by these leaks. Our application offers a wide range of protection so that such breakdowns cannot occur.
Data encryption is not optional but mandatory in our application. Images downloaded via the mRay app are stored in a proprietary format and only contain the data required for the display of the necessary information. There is no way in the app to get access to the original DICOM files.
For more detailed information on data protection and data security in mRay please refer to the official letters to our customers.

mRay-VEOcore - fully automated perfusion analysis
Recently published research results recommend multimodal CT imaging for therapy decision in acute stroke
Based on the current study situation; Defuse 3, DAWN, WAKE-UP and further studies, the critical time window in the treatment of stroke can be extended up to 24h.
Although there is a correlation between brain tissue with low blood supply and time, it could not be shown that this is linear, but rather difficult to predict depending on the patient.
According to Urbach et. al., multimodal CT imaging of acute stroke predicts the outcome of the patient after recanalization therapy better than the time interval between symptom onset and therapy (Urbach,H. (2019). Acute Stroke Imaging in the Era of the DAWN DFUSE 3 and WAKE-UP Study Findings/ European Neurological Review 2019;14(1):24-7). For this reason, medical imaging (both CT and MRT) plays a decisive role in addition to clinical examination, although it has not yet been adequately used in clinical routine.
The solution to these problems lies in the integration of a fully automated evaluation software in a teleradiological network in which the images are generated in the peripheral clinic with standardized protocols. and then sent to the central clinic for evaluation, where the treatment is ultimately performed in the form of a mechanical thrombectomy.
Software solutions for automated evaluation, such as mRay-VEOcore, are no longer nice-to-have, but decisive building blocks during the time- and cost-critical decision chain in the treatment of an acute stroke.
