STATEMENT OF WORK
GENERAL INFORMATION

1. Title of Project: PET/CT Nuclear Medicine Software and Processing Stations

2. Scope of Work: The contractor shall provide all resources necessary to accomplish the deliverables described in this statement of work (SOW), except as may otherwise be specified. This Vendor will supply Nuclear Medicine/PET/CT software and processing equipment that is all-inclusive. Contractor will deliver workstations. Contractor will set up and install the workstations in the Nuclear Medicine Service at CTX VA Temple, Building 163 and PET/CT, Building 200 and configure the Server.

3. Background: Nuclear Medicine and PET/CT have equipment from multiple vendors that currently have their own proprietary workstations to process the data from each. This Vendor will provide multiple workstations that would replace one GE PET/CT workstation, three GE Nuclear workstations, two Siemens Nuclear workstations, and a DSPECT workstation; the department currently has one workstation for PET/CT interpretation that must be shared by all physicians.

4. Performance Period: The contractor shall complete the work required under this SOW in 45 calendar days or less from date of award, unless otherwise directed by the Contracting Officer (CO). If the contractor proposes an earlier completion date, and the Government accepts the contractor s proposal, the contractor s proposed completion date shall prevail.

5. Government POC: The contractor will contact the Government POC TBD to shipping the software and processing workstations in order to set up an installation time.
TBD

6. Salient Characteristics:
MIM Encore
Includes PET/CT and Nuclear Medicine package
View and process images from any camera manufacturer.
Supports ALL modalities: CT, MR, PET, SPECT, INTV
Software must process all Nuclear/PET data to include Nuclear Cardiology, General Nuclear, SPECT/CT, and PET/CT scans.
Software utilizes a Region of Interest (ROI) tool to determine the bounds and adding additional quantitation with the ability to exclude necrotic centers.
Metabolic Tumor Volume tool that s gradient based for PET.
Total Lesion Glycolysis, PET-based auto lesion measurement tool for uptake.
Software supports a fully automatic PET gradient segmentation method for lesions copied from a previous time point.
Store quantitative data and auto-extract the statistics from patients.
Tailored workflows that are user specific to facility
Session saves that allows physicians to pick-up where the technologist left off in the processing or viewing platform from a different workstation; thus, reducing errors and repeated work.
Findings during physician review will be captured and saved for future scan comparisons.
Automatic processing tool for Nuclear Medicine and PET exams that will also pull the patients previous imaging automatically over for comparisons.
Software automatically cleans up/remove data on the workstation based off a facility/user setting.
Four days on-site set-up and training for physicians and technologists.
Dedicated off-site development personnel for one year.
