Date:2/11/2010

SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TechniScan, Inc.'s (OTC Bulletin Board: TSNI) cofounder and scientist-mathematician, James Wiskin, Ph.D, will be a presenting speaker at the SPIE Medical Imaging Conference in San Diego this weekend.

The TechniScan Warm Bath Ultra Sound (WBU™) system, capable of 3-dimensional whole breast imaging, is a result of Wiskin's and colleague David Borup's, Ph. D., groundbreaking work in the mathematics of inverse scattering.  Wiskin will be presenting "Inverse Scattering and Refraction Corrected Reflection for Breast Imaging" to attendees of the SPIE conference at the Town and Country Resort & Convention Center.

SPIE is a non-profit international society for the exchange, collection and dissemination of knowledge in optics, photonics and imaging engineering. SPIE organizes conferences, courses and exhibitions covering many aspects and applications of modern technology.

"The WBU system is the culmination of many years of concentrated effort. We are pleased to present our state-of-the-art technology and scientific development to such a distinguished group," said David Robinson, the company's chief executive officer.

Wiskin is a cofounder and co-inventor of the fundamental imaging algorithms used by TechniScan to produce whole breast ultrasound images. His research includes inverse scattering theory, image processing; and acoustic, electromagnetic, and elastic wave propagation. His dissertation at the University of Utah (Mathematics) established new inverse scattering imaging methods. He currently holds a faculty position in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Utah, where he has taught upper division courses since 1991.
