August 28, 2008 - BSD Medical Corp. will work with GE Medical Systems in the integration of BSD Medical’s cancer treatment system with a GE magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system, marking the first collaborative engineering effort between GE and BSD Medical.
The new system to be installed at Duke University will provide MRI monitoring of cancer treatments in progress as delivered by a BSD Medical system. The BSD-2000/3D/MR is a hybrid integration of a BSD-2000/3D cancer treatment system with a magnetic resonance imaging system (MRI) used to visually monitor deep thermal therapy cancer treatments in progress with thermal imaging through MR-tomography. The images are in color, and temperature within the images is differentiated visually by use of color coding.
MR-tomography is reportedly a classic application for monitoring cancer treatments with BSD Medical’s systems, as these treatments involve delivery of precision-focused heat through RF/microwave energy.
