New version of the Hermia Multimodality Viewer software in North America

New Version of Hermia in North America

Hermes Medical Solutions (HMS), global market leader in molecular imaging and dosimetry software solutions, launches the latest version of its HERMIA Multimodality Viewing Software in Canada and in the USA. 

“This new release gives North American users a new level of customization and personalization of settings and workflow for PET-CT, PET-MR and SPECT-CT reviewing, in a modern and intuitive software platform. It’s another step towards our goal of providing molecular imaging and nuclear medicine departments with user-friendly software that’s compatible with scanners from any manufacturer and enables staff to work efficiently and flexibly.”
Tom Francke, CEO of Hermes Medical Solutions.


Discover below some of the highlights of the latest version of the Hermia Multimodality Viewer software, which has just been released in Canada and in the US.

A new world of customization for your working preferences

  • Hermia makes it quick and easy to carry out routine Viewing, as well as more complex comparative analysis, thanks to fully configurable user-defined work- flows and screen layouts.
  • This new release of the Hermia Multimodality Viewer brings many new shortcut options for keyboard and mouse to simplify and speed up your work. Your personal shortcuts list is easy to access and update.

Advanced visualization with a true 3D multimodality viewer

  • Featuring our unique Deep Fusion TechnologyTM, Hermia Multimodality Viewer is designed to handle multiple time points, bed positions and modalities with ease. It allows any number of fused image layers to support expert reading – bringing new insights for confident diagnosis. 3D data from any modality, and in any combination, including volumes of interest (VOIs), can be visualized and analyzed in real-time.
  • Cinematic view is now available for dynamic datasets, making it possible to view frames as a time-lapse movie at a speed defined by the user.

Accelerated region editing

  • Automatic Local Registration enables alignment of a specific area of the body across multiple time points to be refined automatically, while retaining quantitative accuracy.
  • Regions can be saved as DICOM segmentation data, which can be loaded on a later occasion or exported to PACS. Previous sessions including regions, measurements, and annotations can also be stored and loaded later.
  • Region statistics can be exported and copied for further analysis outside the application. For dynamic PET data: frame reference time, frame duration, and frame index will be part of the out- put when available.
  • A region created using the region tool is always visible – regardless of which viewport or layout the dataset is loaded into.
  • If two datasets are fused, an ROI selected in one of the datasets is automatically transferred to the fused dataset, saving contour- ing time. If the datasets are subsequently unfused, this ROI remains visible for both datasets.
  • Time plot activity for dynamic images shows the biological uptake of the tracer over time in the ROI.

Automatic lesion segmentation and tracking

  • Any tumor can be precisely segmented with just one click. Adjacent tumors can be segmented according to their most relevant constituents, using Intelligent Foci Segmentation.
  • The software automatically tracks and com- pares lesions across multiple time points, providing the user with accurate measurements regarding lesion development, such as Metabolic Tumor Volume, Total Tumor Burden, Metabolic Peak, SUVMax, SUVPeak.
