The Mayo Clinic is expanding the use of an image-guided treatment solution to improve complicated liver procedures.

The provider organization has installed the system, from EDDA Technology, at its facility in Jacksonville, Fla., after having installed it in its Minnesota main campus and Scottsdale, Ariz., facility.

The application, called IQQA, provides comprehensive three-dimensional image analysis, using magnetic resonance and computed tomography, to support in-depth quantitative volumetry of the liver in advance of procedures.

EDDA says the technology has been used in more than 45,000 cases worldwide for surgery and treatment, and that Mayo expects to use it to gain versatility in transplantation, resection or interventional procedure planning.

IQQA can support multidisciplinary teams of physicians “in providing individualized and optimized treatment solutions," says Jianzhong Qian, MD, president and CEO of Princeton, N.J.-based EDDA Technology, which is developing image-guided minimally invasive and robotic treatment. "Powered by our precision 3D capabilities, IQQA aims to facilitate the next generation of precision surgery and treatment."

Mayo Clinic is the largest integrated transplant provider in the U.S. Multidisciplinary teams, including experts in surgery, radiology, and transplant, work together to provide care for cancer patients and living donors.
