College Chairman And Prolific Inventor Develops Life-Saving, Real-Time Diagnostic Technologies

NEW YORK, May 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For years, doctors and microbiologists have sent out biopsies, slides, X-rays and other information outside the body for examination. These tests take days to get back and cannot be used immediately or during procedures. Donald Spector, a well-known, serial entrepreneur-inventor and Chairman of New York College of Health Professions, one of the few institutionally accredited schools of Acupuncture and Massage Therapy in the nation, is changing the face of medicine. Spector is developing a patent that makes it possible to connect everything from powerful scopes used in diagnosis and surgery to computers that can enhance the images, match databases in real time and provide real-time information to doctors during procedures or operations.

Over thirty years ago, Spector emerged as an inventor, developing products over the years that have opened up billion dollar industries. Known in his earlier days for inventions such as the hydraulic exerciser and the first hyperbaric chamber for plants, Spector went on to develop the Aroma Disc System with the Squibb Corporation, which transformed the world of aromatherapy in the 1980's from deodorizers to mood creations. Over a decade ago, he developed patents for location based advertising, which today are the cornerstone technology for Poynt, one of the largest applications in the world.

While computer technologies represent only about ten percent of Spector's vast portfolio of patents, trademarks and copyrights, they represent a major part of his and New York College of Health Professions' future, and his latest patent for medical technologies will provide doctors around the world a revolutionary and powerful diagnostic tool on the cutting edge of the next frontier in surgery: connectivity.

"In certain instances, we don't even need high-powered scopes," stated Spector. "A simple smartphone with a few megapixels can be used to photograph, enhance, match databases and provide real-time information on moles or sunspots to patients and physicians. While this is not a replacement for the physician, it prompts patients to visit physicians in a timely manner and encourages early diagnosis, bringing peace of mind in seconds. In the future, surgeons will not have to wait for an MRI to tell them that all malignant cells were removed – they will know instantly."

Spector's patent is only one of numerous computer-enhanced medical technologies that will change the face of medicine, not only at the great university centers around the world, but in remote geographic areas, where computers, optical equipment and database matching will be able to identify bacteria, viruses and disease in real time. Several famous doctors and hospital leaders are working to help the College, which is also introducing new technologies patented by Spector in LED's that can kill super bacteria and cleanse wounds, as well as reduce contagion.

Barbara Carver, Senior Vice President of Marketing for New York College of Health Professions and a former colleague of Spector's at the Squibb Corporation, commented, "Ironically, when the Aroma Disc was launched in 1984 as the 'Next Frontier in Home Entertainment', everyone made reference to 'Big Brother' of the Huxley novel, 1984. Today, our products are more advanced than science fiction. While some of these products are too big for our small institution, New York College of Health Professions will be forming research collaborations with other universities, as well as spinning off private companies, which will once again be working with Fortune 500 companies. We can't wait to change the future of medicine on a global scale."

Chartered by the New York State Board of Regents, New York College of Health Professions, a not-for-profit institution located in Syosset, Long Island, with three additional sites in New York City, offers institutionally accredited undergraduate and graduate-level degree programs in Massage Therapy, Acupuncture, Oriental Medicine and Herbal Medicine, and Certificate programs in Holistic Nursing for Registered Nurses and The Science of Self Improvement. New York College maintains a 30-acre modern medical facility in Luo Yang, The People's Republic of China. The College has grown remarkably in the past several years and will continue to develop new educational programs as well as expand into many new areas.
