New Open MRI Matches Innovative Technology with Patient Comfort and Ease

New technology spares patients the claustrophobia of conventional MRI. This system now available in the Baton Rouge area at The Pain Treatment Center and First Choice Surgery Center.

Baton Rouge, LA (PRWEB) March 14, 2022 -- For people who fear small, enclosed spaces, the MRI diagnostic test can be their worst nightmare. The test can be long, and lying in an enclosed chamber is tasking on any patient.

Thanks to the new MRI technology available at The Pain Treatment Center and First Choice Surgery Center, the MRI process just got easier. Installed in December 2004, the high performance premium “open” Hitachi Airis II MRI system offers patients a less threatening environment, allowing them to rest easier during testing. For some patients, it means the difference between sedation and no sedation.

The demand for “open” MRI systems and services over the conventional “closed” MRI systems by patients and physicians has been increasing dramatically during the past few years. Claustrophobia, size and weight of the patient or issues related to patient comfort are the contributing factors.

“Patients and their referring physicians will be happy to know the open MRI is not only more comfortable for patients, it also delivers more powerful, faster results,” said Arnold Feldman, M.D., medical director of the Pain Treatment Centers of Baton Rouge and Natchez and the First Choice Surgery Center. “This particular system offers award-winning gantry design, combined with high-speed gradients and state-of-the-art computer and magnetic technology. In short, patients are receiving the best technology available in a more comfortable environment and convenient location.”

MRI or magnetic resonance imaging provides an unparalleled view inside the human body without the use of X-rays. The level of detail shown through MRI is extraordinary compared with any other imaging modality. MRI is the method of choice for the diagnosis of many types of injuries and conditions because of the incredible ability to tailor the exam to the particular medical diagnosis. Although it has been available for the last two decades, MRI has seen tremendous improvements over the past few years with continued advances in technology. “Better diagnosis of the problem translates to improved treatment faster,” said Feldman. “It’s a win-win for patients and their families. For some patients, the open MRI means no sedation needed and quicker results without the anxiety factor.”

Criterium, Inc. Continues Building Bridges with Technology

Criterium, Inc., which applies technology to clinical trials in the biopharmaceutical, pharmaceutical and medical-device industries across the world, will present a workshop at the annual conference for contract research organizations in April.

Saratoga Springs, NY (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 10, 2022 — Criterium, Inc., a global technology-based contract research organization, is proud to welcome Lawrence Reiter, general manager of Criterium South Africa, as well as Dr. Shaunagh Emanuel, a distinguished researcher and investigator at PEAK Research in Cape Town, South Africa, to the United States this spring for the 14th Annual Partnerships with CROs conference in Dallas, Texas.

Mr. Reiter and Dr. Emanuel are both currently involved in finishing a major project being managed by Criterium, Inc. in South Africa. This will mark the end of the second major study this year that Criterium, Inc. has conducted in South Africa using IVRS, Fax Form Data Collection, and SMS messaging.

Criterium has been providing creative, clinical-research solutions for more than 14 years. At the annual Partnerships with CROs conference April 4-6, Dr. Emanuel, Reiter and Criterium’s international clinical trials team will conduct a workshop called, “The Big Easy: Successfully Applying Technology to Clinical Trials across World Regions.”

In addition to delivering outstanding patient enrollment and over 90 percent compliance on both studies, Criterium, Inc. has developed a fantastic relationship with clinical investigators throughout South Africa.

“Technology brings us closer together by allowing real-time tracking of each patient enrolled in the study as well as activity at each site,” said Mary Stefanzick, manager of Office Operations and IVR director at Criterium, Inc. “However, the relationships of the individuals using the technology are the real key to a successful outcome,” she said.

The bottom line is “Even with the best technology in the world, if you can’t get the patient to use it, it doesn’t work,” Reiter added.

Dr. Emanuel praised the Criterium team. “These individuals are exceptional in the energy that they put into their projects, in their enthusiasm that they have for what they do, and in the expertise they exhibit at every level,” she said. “In addition to a commitment to excellent personal service, Criterium offers a superb product. It has been a true pleasure to work with Criterium.”

Dr. Emanuel’s comments were welcomed by the Criterium staff, which had been unsure what to expect after meeting a group of clinical investigators hesitant to implement technology a year and a half ago at the first meeting in South Africa.

“I feel like we have done our job and provided the support necessary to enable the investigators and patients to trust in our systems and use them to their full capabilities,” Stefanzick said. “I’m looking forward to doing it again.”

March is DVT Awareness Month

Seeing The Culprit: Draxis’ Nuclear Medicine Strives for Faster Detection Of DVT - A Common but Serious Medical Condition
March is Deep-Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Awareness Month, a public health initiative to educate healthcare professionals and consumers about this serious, potentially life-threatening but preventable medical condition.

(PRWEB) March 4, 2022 -- DVT describes a blood clot (thrombus) in a major vein, usually in the lower leg or thigh. According to the American Heart Association, up to 2 million Americans develop DVT each year, and an estimated 600,000 go on to develop Pulmonary Embolism (PE), a potentially fatal complication where blood clots affect the lungs and eventually the heart. An estimated 200,000 people die each year from PE in the U.S. – more than AIDS and breast cancer combined.

Symptoms of DVT may include pain, sudden swelling in the calf or thigh, tenderness, discoloration or redness, and skin that is warm to the touch. Surprisingly, these symptoms are often mistaken for other diseases and as many as half of all DVT episodes produce minimal symptoms or are completely “silent” and remain undiagnosed until they lead to a life threatening pulmonary embolism.

Ultrasound is the most common diagnostic tool for DVT but is not considered particularly accurate below the knee, where many clots begin to form, and it only has approximately 60% sensitivity for asymptomatic DVT. Venography is a painful and much less commonly used procedure where a contrast agent is injected into a vein on top of the foot and X-rays are used to track the solution through the vein of the leg. However, the same type of nuclear medicine procedure that is used today for liver, lung, bone and brain scans may one day help physicians rapidly detect the active clotting process in DVT.

A new diagnostic imaging agent, called Fibrimage®, under development by Canadian-based Draxis Health, aims to make DVT detection quicker and more reliable. Researchers at Draxis Health are investigating whether Fibrimage® can accurately check for newly-forming thrombus (blood clots) in the large, deep veins in the lower limbs. These dangerous clots can be caused by a variety of risk factors and triggered by either increasing age, obesity, cancer or decreased blood flow resulting from restricted mobility following major surgery such as joint replacements.

This innovative diagnostic approach starts with an injection of Fibrimage® in the arm. The active agent in Fibrimage® binds to human fibrin, part of an actively forming blood clot, and within two hours the clot can be seen on a gamma camera. The procedure is expected to allow physicians to distinguish, with a high degree of sensitivity, a new active thrombus from any older and less threatening stabilized clots.

“Most doctors rely on conventional ultrasound scans to make a diagnosis, but ultrasound cannot distinguish whether the clot is an active clot needing urgent attention or a chronic inactive clot,” said Dr. Martin Barkin, CEO of Draxis Health, “Our goal is to develop Fibrimage®, to the point that it can be a reliable diagnostic agent for the early detection of deep venous thrombosis, and recurrent deep venous thrombosis so that life-saving therapy can be targeted at the affected patient in a timely way and long term complications can be minimized.”

A late stage clinical trial of Fibrimage® as a diagnostic agent for deep venous thrombosis is nearing completion in Canada and discussions are on-going with the FDA to conduct an additional late stage trial in the United States.

New Digital Solutions for Health Care Providers: EMR/ EHR revised

Health Office solution company Comtech Networks focuses on assisting medical offices to comply with new rules, regulations and guidelines.

Long Island, NY (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 2, 2022 -- Star Trek’s Doctor’s would have been amused, but for today’s medical practitioners, a tablet PC, which retrieves medical data from a server is just one available technical tool, helping them to increase data security and reduce administrative costs. Service companies now offer customized solutions for each individual medical office, following the goals of the paperless office, the EMR (electronic medical records) guidelines and President Bush’s new pledge for an “US Electronic Health Record System (EHR)”.

Comtech Networks, based in Long Island (New York) is a prime example of a specialized health office solution provider. The company is focused on the improvement of procedures and standards in medical offices from 1-40 doctors. After initial assessments, Comtech Networks suggests various software and -if necessary -hardware solutions, which are focused around the practice manager’s needs and include as much or as less digital/ electronic change as necessary.

“Our main goal is to increase the profitability and productivity of the medical office,” says Jim Carpenter, CEO of Comtech Networks, “The result is a win-win situation for everybody. Digital Medical Office Solutions is about the simplification of office procedures, reduction of costs, increase in payments, decrease in errors and a clear enhancement of data security.”

In accordance with the government’s new initiative, Comtech recognized some time ago, the importance of “incorporating health information technology”. As President Bush recently said, it is time to “wring out the inefficiencies” of our “19th century paperwork system”.
The services Comtech is offering to a health care provider include:
• The design of a completely automated office (in cooperation with Greenway Medical Technologies)
• The integration of a document management solution (in cooperation with SRS Software)
• a customized “minimal solution” to achieve compliance

Already under the regulations of the 1996 HIPAA (“Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act”) every medical practice was required to comply with the new privacy and security rules, which started to be latest enforced in 2004. During this period, Comtech has successfully assisted numerous medical practices across the United States in their transition to an efficient modern office environment. Jim Carpenter proudly points out, that “…most of our customers have been impressed by our passion for details – that is: finding the right solution for their individual situation. There is a difference between a 3 provider OB/GYN practice and a 15 doctor medical center – so you always need a customized approach from a local expert.”

Now, Comtech is ready to take its services a step further and to make every doctors office in the North East ready to become part of the “New National Electronic Health Care Network” and connect them to President Bush’s proposed “regional hubs”. Comtech still works with many of its original customers, but the IT service company is confident that it will increase its customer base remarkably, once the mainstream practitioners realize the benefits and business sense of adopting an EMR/ EHR.

About Comtech Networks:
Comtech Networks provides digital solutions for the medical office, through assessment, analysis, and implementation of customized systems. Comtech offers partial or complete solutions for EMR (Electronic Medical Record), document management, scheduling, billing and general IT challenges.

Since 1996, the Long Island (New York) based company has focused on the needs of the medical office. Gaining outstanding expertise with HIPAA compliance challenges, Comtech Networks is now focused completely on helping every medical office in the North East to become part of the National Electronic Health Care Record Network (EHR).

Comtech Networks was established in 1988 and provided premium system development, infrastructure support, and project management expertise to a variety of markets. In this time Comtech successfully supported technology intensive organizations such as Citigroup®, Citibank®, Blockbuster Video, Stony Brook University Hospital, Sony, and Prodigy.

Dr. Rahul Nath Announces Grand Opening of City of Houston’s First Stand-Up™ MRI Facility

Dr. Nath has scanned more than 300 patients using Stand-Up™ technology; opens facility to serve need for more accurate and less claustrophobic scanning.

Houston, TX (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 1, 2022 -- Dr. Rahul Nath, a reconstructive microsurgeon at the Texas Medical Center in Houston, Texas, and founder and director of the Texas Nerve and Paralysis Institute, announces the grand opening of Natural MRI, the City of Houston’s first stand-up magnetic resonance scanning or imaging (MRI) facility at 8307 Knight Road in Houston (www.drnathmri.com).

MRI is a method of looking inside the body without using surgery, harmful dyes or x-rays. The scanner uses magnetism and radio waves to produce remarkably clear pictures of the human anatomy. Stand-Up™ MRI allows patients to stand, sit or lay down while they are scanned.

With this technology, patients for the first time can be scanned in weight-bearing postures and in the position that causes their symptoms. The upright posture places all of the joints, including the shoulder, neck and spine, under the influence of gravity, which allows for better imaging to determine misalignment of the shoulder joints and abnormal spine positions.

"Scanning patients in the weight-bearing position is the only one that makes sense, especially when imaging the spine and knee joints. Using Stand-Up™ MRI, I have been able to identify pathology in patients that is not visible using traditional scanners. Other aspects that can only effectively be imaged in the upright position include the prostate gland and hernias," Dr. Nath said.

Prior to opening the Natural MRI facility, Dr. Nath scanned more than 300 patients since December 2004 using Stand-UP™ MRI technology.

"I chose to open the Natural MRI facility because the patients I treat for complex nerve injuries, such as brachial plexus and winging scapula, benefit from a scan that will help me better diagnose their injury. With Stand-Up™ MRI, children do not have to undergo risky sedation as with traditional MRI scans," Dr. Nath said.

Dr. Nath said that Stand-Up™ MRI is remarkably spacious and non-claustrophobic and that his patients typically sit comfortably watching a 42-inch television monitor throughout the procedure. Patients as young as six months old can be scanned while they are sitting on an adult’s lap. The entire process takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes to complete.

Dr. Nath utilizes the FONAR Corporation’s Stand-Up™ MRI, the company’s whole-body Upright™ imaging system, which is the world's only whole-body open MRI scanner with the ability to perform Position Imaging™ (pMRI™), which is imaging that is performed while patients are standing, sitting, bending or lying down. With its unique ability to scan patients in weight-bearing postures, the FONAR Stand-Up™ MRI has identified pathology that had gone undetected on conventional, lie-down MRI scanners.

Dr. Nath is Board-certified by the American Board of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and is a widely published author, as well as a member of the American Society for Peripheral Nerve, the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Houston Neurological Society. He has been named one of "America’s Top Doctors" every year since 2001 and travels internationally to lecture and give instructional courses on nerve injury and management. Dr. Nath specializes in treating brachial plexus injuries, winging scapula injuries, prostate nerve injuries, foot drop, facial paralysis, impotence and nerve tumors.

Sensor Systems Can Improve Quality of Life for Millions

Dynamic pressure measurement technology helps podiatrists, chiropractors, orthopedists and other professionals evaluate and diagnose a diverse range of plantar problems such as diabetic foot, ulcerations, hammertoes and neuromas. Early signs of scoliosis and other conditions can also be detected.

East Hanover, NJ (PRWEB) March 1, 2022 -- Through recent advances in its Tactilus® plantar pressure measurement technology, Sensor Products LLC is now positioned to assist podiatrists, orthopedists, chiropractors and other medical professionals in making the best diagnoses and recommendations for their patients. Essentially, the emergence of technologies like the Tactilus® foot platform and insole systems is critical to the well-being of millions of people.

For instance, diabetes is the fifth major cause of disease-related deaths in the United States. Out of the estimated 18.2 million Americans affected, 4.5 million will suffer from plantar problems like degenerative foot disorder and complications due to neuropathy such as bunions, hammertoes, Charcot feet and more. Experts on the disease stress comprehensive foot care for amputation prevention and overall comfort for diabetes sufferers. Orthotic devices and appropriate footwear play a large role in the quality of life for these patients.

However, diabetics aren’t the only demographic subjected to pain caused by plantar pressure abnormalities. In fact, about 100 million Americans experience biomechanical plantar problems caused by obesity or arthritis-induced heel pain, heel spurs, hammertoes or neuromas. By utilizing Tactilus® foot platform and insole electronic pressure measurement sensors, professionals can easily detect, diagnose and monitor patients with these and other plantar abnormalities. Visit www.sensorprod.com for more information.

“These new analysis systems are the most advanced in the world and can be dedicated to innumerable applications,” said Carlos Ruiz, Tactilus® product manager. “The link between technological advancement and human quality of life is ultimately exhibited because of the diverse global populations the Tactilus® systems can potentially benefit.”

Employing user-friendly software, the foot platform and insole sensor systems generate in-depth statistical information and dynamic 2-D and 3-D profile images for such medical and ergonomic body mapping needs as: diabetic and neuropathic patient screening, orthotic and prosthetic efficacy profiling, pronation/supination impact evaluation during bi-pedal locomotion activities, pre- and post-surgical comparative analysis, ulceration detection, degenerative foot disorder monitoring, ray hypermobility diagnosis, and early scoliosis detection. With unprecedented speed and accuracy, the systems comprehensively profile plantar pressure distribution and magnitude.

The Tactilus® foot platform analysis system enables professionals to perform dynamic pressure profiling in order to evaluate shoe-to-ground interaction related to the diabetic foot, pronation, foot arch and weight-bearing capabilities and assess impact effects in bipedal locomotion activities of both feet, either exclusively, or in relation to each other. The platform detects body motion (foot-knee-hip) to effectively profile any abnormalities. In addition, densely packed sensors in the Tactilus® platform analysis system offer the user high resolution images and a modular architecture.

The Tactilus® insole systems are advantageous in their basic design by assessing foot-to-shoe interaction. The foot insole is comprised a thin and highly durable substrate material and ranges in size from unisex US 1.5 to 10.5 (EUR 33 to 44). The insole sensor collects precise data for determining pedal pressure points and assessing athletic plantar implants in activities ranging from standing and walking to running, jumping, skiing and skating. Working at speeds up to 500 Hz, this system’s velocity is unmatched by any other technology.

Both the Tactilus® foot platform and insole analysis systems possess robust sensors which can endure thousands of uses with consistent repeatability, and are highly resistant to electromagnetic noise, temperature, and humidity fluctuations. The full-scale Windows-based software provides isobar and region-of-interest viewing, graphical displays of data in bar charts, line scans and histograms, statistical analysis of average/minimum/maximum pressures, total force over any selected area, analysis view of all nine major foot zones, pressure vs. time and more.

Fingerprint Recognition Technology Makes Door Lock Keys a Thing of the Past

This release announces the new M28 Fingerprint Door Lock. An innovative security device that combines a conventional door lock with high precision biometric fingerprint recognition technology.

(PRWEB) January 25, 2022 -- Doors have locks to keep unauthorized people out of course. Unfortunately, the reality is that door keys get lost, duplicated, or even worse… stolen. MATA BioTech has developed a biometric door lock designed to recognize the authorized user’s fingerprint in order to open a door, making conventional keys unnecessary.

In these troubling times when security is of critical concern, the M28 Fingerprint Door Lock delivers an improved solution to an age old dilemma. The M28 is easily installed on just about any standard door and provides businesses and homeowners with peace of mind, knowing that only the fingerprints of authorized users can access the lock.

Forget about fumbling for your keys. Simply place your finger on the door lock and in less than 3 seconds, it recognizes you and you’re in. Never worry about losing keys or unauthorized duplication…ever! More importantly, secure any room with the most unique key on earth… your fingerprint.

How does it work? The user gently presses their finger against the sensor surface. This sensor is connected to a microprocessor inside the lock. The information from the scan is analyzed. If verification of the fingerprint is successful, the lock mechanism opens allowing you to turn the handle and open the door. Initially, a fingerprint is scanned and enrolled right on the lock, and it is instantly converted into a mathematical template. This template is a data representation of the fingerprint. It is stored in the memory of the lock, and later used during verification.

“Its a common problem that happens to all of us; we misplace, lose, or have even had our keys stolen,” said Dr. Olman Mata president of MATA BioTech. “It’s a simple fact, keys, pin codes, passwords, or proximity cards are convention access methods that can be stolen, lost, or passed on to unauthorized users. Biometric methods cannot be stolen lost or copied. Your fingerprint is unique and no one can steal that from you.”

The M28 Fingerprint Door lock can store up to 10 fingerprints, and has the unique ability to enroll and delete individual fingerprints from its memory without having to erase all stored fingerprints. All this is easily and quickly done right on the lock, without the need of a computer link, or technical knowledge. Three identical mechanical keys are included to manually open the door if so desired.

Very easy to install and even easier to operate. It can replace just about any door knob or door handle using the door’s existing bore hole. Solid heavy duty construction yet stylish in design, it is made from durable zinc-alloy metal. This lock is suitable for home or office and requires no hard wiring or complicated door modifications. The M28 is powered by four standard AA alkaline batteries that are included. Battery life is 8 months to a year depending on usage. When the battery power is low, the unit produces an audible warning signal. The lock will even operate dozens of times before the batteries are fully depleted. When the batteries are removed and replaced, the enrolled fingerprints remain in memory.

Dr. Olman Mata integrates his knowledge of human biology and electronic circuitry to design and manufacture affordable innovative biometric devices. The company is also known for the G10 fingerprint drawer lock, and they are also developing a biometric briefcase with fingerprint recognition technology. MATA BioTech is based in Southern California. For more information, visit www.matabiotech.com or call 1-877-782-4336
