Four Scientific and Medical Imaging Leaders to Provide Counsel to the MRI Company
NETANYA, Israel -- Aug. 17, 2010
Aspect Magnet Technologies Ltd. announced today that it has formed a scientific advisory board to advise and help guide the company as it continues to develop a new generation of compact, affordable, easy-to-use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems using its proprietary permanent magnet technology.
“The willingness of this distinguished group of international research imaging experts to come together to contribute their perspectives to the further development of our compact MRI systems shows the interest of preclinical researchers in having non-invasive imaging tools available directly in the lab,” said Uri Rapoport, founder and chief executive officer of Aspect. “There is clearly an important role that freestanding, compact MRI systems can play to accelerate research and enable new ways of gathering information.”
Joining the company’s scientific advisory board are:
The scientific advisory board members will provide ongoing input and feedback on the company’s products and technology development.
Aspect will be showcasing its MRI systems at the upcoming World Molecular Imaging Congress Sept. 8-11 in Kyoto, Japan at booth #410.
Aspect Magnet Technologies Ltd. designs, develops and manufactures compact high-resolution Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) based systems. Through its equipment, Aspect enables life sciences and medical researchers in the pre-clinical market to speed scientific discovery and drug development by allowing them to perform in vivo small animal imaging and in vitro studies directly in their laboratories. Aspect’s breakthrough in permanent magnet technology and affordable, easy-to-use systems allows MRI to be used routinely by solving many drawbacks found in today’s MRI market, such as high unit cost, high cost of ownership, complex operation & installation.
