Ohio Third Frontier awards $2.5 million for imaging research in Cleveland
Date:9/6/2011

CLEVELAND The Ohio Third Frontier Commission has awarded $2.5 million in research grants to advance the Philips Healthcare Global Advanced Imaging Innovation Center, a collaboration among Case Western Reserve University, University Hospitals (UH) Case Medical Center and Philips Healthcare. The research projects are part of $30 million in funding awarded throughout the State of Ohio this week by the Ohio Third Frontier Commission.

These latest grants fund two significant imaging research projects that are part of the Philips Healthcare Global Advanced Imaging Innovation Center, formed in June 2010 to bring together radiologic experts to coordinate clinical research, education, development and commercialization of advanced imaging technologies. The Imaging Center was funded through an initial $5 million from Ohio Third Frontier Commission and a $33.4 million matching commitment from Philips.

"This additional funding from the Ohio Third Frontier Commission further establishes Northeast Ohio as a worldwide hub for imaging technology," says Pablo Ros, MD, Chairman of Radiology at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and UH Case Medical Center. "The collaboration between Case Western Reserve, UH and Philips has created a pipeline to move innovative technologies more quickly into patient care and these unique research projects are the next step in this important synergy between our organizations."

The Ohio Third Frontier grants are:

  • Positron Mammographic Imaging: $999,649 for a project to develop a first-of-its-kind system that will provide greatly enhanced resolution of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) technology that is used to detect breast cancer through CT or MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) imaging. Using the new PET/MRI at the UH Seidman Cancer Center, one of four in the world, researchers will explore if this hybrid imaging technology enhances the ability to more accurately detect breast cancer.
