About TopSpin

TopSpin Medical developed an innovative and unique technology for high-resolution MRI using an IntraVascular MRI (IVMRI) catheter for the coronary arteries, without the need for an expensive and bulky external MRI setup. The catheter contains those components, which are usually found in a conventional MRI scanner, only that they are miniaturized to less than 2 millimeters in size. In 2006 TopSpin Medical began to develop its technology for imaging prostate cancer by an integrated endo-rectal MRI and ultrasound probe.
