About LMS (Lesion Management Solutions)
MEDIAN Lesion Management Solutions detect, evaluate and follow-up lesions identified in computed tomography (CT) scans. The LMS perform a number of measurements automatically (such as lesion dimensions, volume and density); these parameters are used in both routine clinical practice and during clinical trials to evaluate patient responses to cancer therapies.
LMS are adaptable and compatible with all CT scanners. They can be integrated into heterogeneous IT environments and easily installed on sites with very diverse equipment and software configurations. MEDIAN LMS are provided as “Software as A Service”; they are web-based, fully distributed and available anywhere in the world.
