May 6, 2008 - VirtualScopics Inc. said today that its chief scientific officer, Edward Ashton, Ph.D., will deliver two speeches and co-author an abstract at the International Society for Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Medicine (ISMRM) conference in Toronto, Canada.
Ashton’s presentations on May 7 and 8 will focus on the company’s work in dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI, an advanced medical image analysis technique that measures blood flow and permeability and enables the early detection of a drug’s effectiveness in treating cancer and other diseases.
“Our proprietary analysis techniques surrounding the measuring of blood flow within a tumor continue to demonstrate great value to the industry,” Ashton said. “Because of the improved specificity and sensitivity of our tools we were able to determine that our method, compared to three other methods, was the only one that detected the treatment effect of our customer’s compound.”
