About HealthAmerica, Inc.

HealthAmerica is developing a patented, FDA 510(k) cleared, technology (VIVASlices(TM)) that is expected to enhance the resolution of images resulting from MRI. The underlying algorithm may also be useful in determining blood flow velocity measures in imaged tissues, which would be valuable in accessing areas of blood flow constriction from plaques or other hematologic deposits. This information could help physicians better diagnose, predict and assess stroke and related diseases involving blood flow obstruction.

At the end of 2000, there were approximately 9,500 MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) systems installed worldwide. While changes in medical reimbursements have slowed the sale of new machines, there is an increased demand for improved efficiency (i.e. accelerated patient throughput) from current systems. Additionally, intense competition between various medical facilities and the rapid distribution of new advances in imaging (such as MR angiographies, which allow evaluation of blood vessels without any invasive procedure) puts additional pressure on MRI because increased image quality requires additional time. Thus there is a huge need for an application like VIVASlices that can improve both throughput and image quality.
