Time Medical Systems, a member of Steering committee of the Academy for Radiology & Bio Medical Imaging Research / CIBR, http://www.acadrad.org/cibr-steering-committee/ recently participated in the 9th annual Technology Showcase that was presented on Capitol Hill in Washington DC on April 10th. As in previous years, Time Medical along with numerous Academic members and other leading Imaging Industrial partners presented advances in imaging technology along with their benefits to diagnostic medicine and their benefits to overall health improvements for patients. Many exciting topics were reviewed.
This year Dr Yuri Wedmid presented a new 7T PreClinical MRI that was described for use in early studies of various diseases especially with new drug development. Using such systems on smaller animal models is often a rapid way to explore drug benefits without the early risks associated with natural product screening and pharmaceutical testing for safety and efficacy. Several independent posters by academic researchers using animal models such as Rabbits and Rats supported the utility of higher field MRI exploration in preclinical studies.
Interest was strong and encouraging for Time Medical Systems and its future roadmap for nee developments in the area of new Preclinical MRI at 7T, 9.4T and higher Magnetic fields - that are not yet achievable for larger human studies. Time Medical System has been a long term supporter of the Academy and CIBR and will continue to collaborate with the research partners in the CIBR (Coalition for Imaging & Bioengineering Research).
