Breast MRI Manufacturer Expands into China

Breast MRI Manufacturer Expands into China

June 24, 2010 ? A U.S. breast MRI system manufacturer announced its first installation in China this week. The Aurora Dedicated Breast MRI System from Aurora Imaging Technology Inc. will be installed in the world-renowned Ruijin Hospital located in Shanghai, the teaching hospital for China’s top-tiered Jiao Tong University Medical School.

“We chose the Aurora System because it offers outstanding image resolution and clarity that are essential for our patient population,” said Dengbin Wang, M.D., Ph.D., vice chairman, professor of radiology, and chief radiologist, Department of Radiology, Ruijin Hospital. “We wanted the best for our patients, and Aurora provided features that clearly set it apart from MRI systems with ‘add-on’ breast coils. In the brief time since we installed the Aurora System we have been seeing more than ten patients a day and we anticipate this number will continue to grow steadily.”

The incidence of breast cancer in parts of Asia is rising steeply and catching up with rates in the Western world. In addition, women in Asia have a high propensity for dense breast tissue, which can be difficult to image using traditional mammography and ultrasound. The Aurora Dedicated Breast MRI System offers an advantage over traditional breast imaging techniques, such as mammography, to imaging dense breast tissue, therefore making the need for access to this technology critical for Asian women.
