September 18, 2007 - With a shared goal of improving breast cancer care in China and the U.S., the Aurora Breast MRI Society (ABMS) today announced its collaboration with the China Medical Women’s Association (CMWA).

A professional exchange program is the first curriculum currently being developed for this collaboration, whereby research specialists from China will be sponsored to spend two-to-three weeks in leading comprehensive breast centers in the U.S. to learn about breast imaging modalities and their use in the detection, diagnosis and treatment monitoring of breast cancer. Boston-based Aurora Imaging Technology, Inc. has committed as the first corporate underwriter of the program.

“There is an urgent need for more advanced breast imaging technologies among women in Asia, as breast cancer is now the leading cause of cancer death in women,” said Olivia Ho Cheng, president and chief executive officer of Aurora. “The objective of the Aurora Breast MRI Society in forging this relationship with the China Medical Women’s Association is to educate Asian physicians who have the greatest interest in furthering this cause by introducing them to the most advanced state-of-art technologies available, then return them to their own professional communities to educate other leading health care providers. Because we know this alliance with the China Medical Women’s Association will help save lives, we are proud to support this collaboration.”
