FIRMM provides real-time monitoring and biofeedback technology that addresses the significant problem of patient motion during brain MR. The FIRMM software solution efficiently imports MR images, analyzes, and displays motion data in real-time, enabling the operator and patient to become aware of head motion during scanning - ultimately supporting workflows, motion reduction, and scanning efficiency.
How It Works
Touch Screen Interface
FIRMM uses the MRI images directly and does not require a camera or other complicated sensing hardware to be installed in your MRI scanner.
The FIRMM Patient Biofeedback is compatible with a wide range of video display configuration and interfaces seamlessly with your in-bore audio visual system.
FIRMM can measure and display movements less than a micron enabling the operator and the patient to control for voluntary motions they may not appreciate, or even be aware of, without this new technology.
Solving the most prevalent source of artifacts in MRIs: Motion.
Some subjects make it easy to collect high quality data.
Some subjects make it difficult to collect high quality data.
With most, it’s hard to tell just by looking. Enter FIRMM.
Some of the features added to the latest FIRMM software release:
- View framewise displacement calculations (movement) in real time
- See the quality of your data at a glance
- Predict how much scan time you will need to collect quality data
- Stop scanning when your goals are met
