College Chairman And Prolific Inventor Develops Life-Saving, Real-Time Diagnostic Technologies
Date:5/24/2012

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 database
