On average, every 56 seconds in the US,
a nuclear medicine patient is significantly extravasated.

It could be you, a family member, or a friend.

We need your help to fix this patient safety issue.

The Lara® System

  • Patient Safety/Quality in Nuclear Medicine Injections
  • Immunotherapy assessment*
  • Palpable tumor assessment*
  • Parkinson’s Disease evaluation*
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis quantification*

*These applications have not been cleared or approved by the FDA and are limited by United States law to Investigational Use.

The first commercial application for the Lara® System: Patient Safety

An extravasation, also known as infiltration, is the misadministration of an injection intended for a patient’s vein. Lara provides quality control and quality assurance for nuclear medicine injections. So, patients know when they have been exposed to unintentional radiation and physicians know when images are compromised.

  • Published infiltration rate: 15.2%
  • Infiltrations reduce diagnostic sensitivity

Annually:

18.5M
nuclear medicine injections
2.8M
affected patients
500K+
significant extravasations*

*Company estimates based on 20,000+ monitored injections

It is extremely important to control the quality of the PET/CT scan, particularly when it has implications for monitoring response to therapy and the management of the patient. The Lucerno sensor can assess the quality of the injection process, removing at least one potential source of variability from the scan protocol.
