TechniScan Announces Adding Another Center to Worldwide Clinical Trials for New Breast Imaging System
Date:6/16/2010

een exams, are critical to support precise and reliable assessment of breast lesions. Clinical studies in San Diego recently evaluated the ability of the system to reliably reproduce images from the same woman.

"We have clearly demonstrated that the system can reliably reproduce images based on reflection and sound transmission and that those images will have significant clinical utility," said David Robinson TechniScan's president and CEO.

"Volumetric whole-breast imaging provides a substantial practical advantage over conventional very-small-field-of-view sonography. We are greatly aided by the ability to produce repeatable whole-breast comparisons – left to right and present to past. These comparisons are the nuts and bolts of breast imaging, by any modality," said Michael Andre, Ph.D., adjunct professor of radiology and director of medical physics at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine.

Building on this prior clinical work, the current clinical studies in Freiberg, Germany, San Diego and Rochester will involve at least 500 women with various types of breast lesions.  Major objectives of the 12-month study will be to compare WBU to conventional breast sonography and MRI as well as to examine the WBU system's ability to differentiate between normal, benign and malignant breast tissue. These clinical studies in the U.S. are funded by a Small Business Innovation Research Grant (SBIR) from the National Cancer Institute.

TechniScan's current study sites include the University Medical Center Freiburg in Germany, Moores UCSD Cancer Center, and the latest clinical study site in
