IRISQA is a leader in the development of software-based analysis tools for Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Nuclear Medicine (NM) imaging systems. The initial release of the company’s CT quality assurance (QA) tool took place in the late 1980’s as “PC/AutoQA,” which was the first automated QA program commercially available for CT imaging devices. This product is used internationally by physicists and service engineers in Europe and Asia. We continue to improve this product to respond to changes in the development of CT and its application in radiation therapy as well as diagnostic and cardiac imaging advances. We expanded our initial QA product’s scope to include other imaging modalities such as MRI, Nuclear Medicine with its Single Photon Emission Tomography (SPECT), and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) systems based on our extensive experience with our CT QA product. Our newest addition to our CT QA product area is providing a low cost option for implementing a QA program for third world countries; this product is a package that includes a cost-engineered CT QA phantom with remote data image analysis and expert interpretation of results. In the NM QA product line, we have developed a gamma camera testing package, the NMTool Kit®, which provides testing phantoms with the automated analysis support and reporting tools.

This company’s software and related hardware provides one of the only multi-vendor calibration and QC product kits for large imaging systems operators. Our success in western Europe has led us to conclude that substantial opportunities for enhanced distribution are available in Latin America, Asia and other international locations. In addition, we perceive excellent opportunities for expansion in organizations which encompass a variety of imaging equipment such as multi-facility hospitals, learning institutions and governmental departments.
