We announced that we were issued a patent for “PHANTOM FOR OPTICAL AND MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING QUALITY CONTROL,” as U.S. Patent No. 6,675,035. This invention relates to phantoms for use in optical and magnetic resonance imaging that emulates the optical characteristics of breast tissue, that resembles the breast in shape and size, as an integral component of a quality assurance protocol to verify the performance of the medical imaging apparatus being evaluated.
We announced that we were issued a patent for “METHOD FOR IMPROVING THE ACCURACY OF DATA OBTAINED IN A LASER IMAGING APPARATUS,” as U.S. Patent No. 6,681,130. This method improves the accuracy of data obtained using a diagnostic medical imaging apparatus that employs a near-infrared laser and array of detectors with variable gain amplifiers that can accommodate the wide dynamic range of signals available from the detectors.
