"This past year has been extremely rewarding for the Sentinelle team. Not only have we been able to partner with MRI market leaders like GE, Siemens and Toshiba, but we are being recognized for our innovations with this prestigious Award."

"Sentinelle's Vanguard technologies significantly improve the diagnostic capabilities and patient comfort for Breast MRI," said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Travis Chong. "Sentinelle has quickly gained recognition as a technology leader with its advanced ergonomic Vanguard design and adjustable visco-elastic padding that enables clinicians to achieve greater image resolution and improved patient management. With clear improvements to both the form and function of an MRI auxiliary table, it's no wonder why the company has achieved tremendous growth within the emerging Breast MRI market."
