Molecular imaging methods are rapidly evolving. Hybrid systems allow correlating function and morphology with unprecedented accuracy and resolution. The PMOD software has been designed for researchers in this challenging field. It provides solutions for all stages of quantitative data processing, helping the researchers focus on contents rather than tool programming (list of PMOD tools and success factors, brochure with 2-page tool descriptions).
PMOD consists of a comprehensive set of user-friendly and powerful tools, each corresponding to a major task such as kinetic modeling, parametric mapping, image registration, 3D rendering and pattern analysis. Due to their smooth interaction, they form a flexible workbench for all kinds of research data from humans and other species.
To date, the user community includes more than 600 sites with over 2000 users worldwide. Most of them are dedicated to PET or SPECT research. Others take advantage of the unique image analysis capabilities for solving difficult questions in their routine work. The application of PMOD for research is documented in over 2000 peer-reviewed publications.
PMOD is a Java application and is currently offered under Windows, Linux and MacOSX. It runs on standard 64-Bit computer platforms. At least 16 GB RAM, a multi-core processor, and a dedicated mid- to high-end graphics card are recommended for comfortably working with experimental data.
PMOD is compatible with the image data from all major clinical and preclinical system vendors. Images can be read and written in DICOM as well as in multiple native formats. Therefore, PMOD is immediately productive in virtually all environments without additional efforts or investments.
Note: PMOD Tools have no approval for clinical use.
