Cubresa Granted U.S. Patent for Flexible Imaging Sensors

“Imaging cloak” patent could enable more accurate 3-D medical imaging

July 27, 2016 — Cubresa Inc. announced the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued a U.S. patent for a novel arrangement of imaging sensors and methods for determining sensor positions for 3-D imaging. The new method describes mounting many imaging sensors underneath a flexible substrate could reveal tumors within humans or animals.

Cubresa, a medical imaging company that develops and markets nuclear imaging systems, said the patent was designated U.S. Patent 9,322,930.

“The best imaging places cameras as close as possible to the surface of the subject’s skin,” said James Schellenberg, co-inventor and founder and CTO of Cubresa. “This has been a problem with humans and other live animals. For example, the curvature of a woman’s breast and underarm area, where imaging of cancer and lymph node involvement is needed, is topographically complex and will vary from woman to woman.”

Instead of mechanically rotating a camera or cameras around the area or having a person move a camera by hand, Cubresa’s technique places a large number of small imaging sensors under a flexible substrate that can be easily adjusted to fit the subject. The exact positioning of each sensor is determined, and sophisticated software algorithms create 3-D images out of the many 2-D images from each sensor.

Cubresa CEO George Abe said the flexible imaging sensors could be used in preclinical as well as clinical applications.
