MUNICH, May 24, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Today, iThera Medical announces the installation of the world's first RSOM
Dr. Sarah Bohndiek, group leader at the CRUK CI and head of the 'Vision Lab' said: "Combining exquisite resolution with the ability to resolve tumor hemoglobin concentration and oxygenation status, the RSOM Explorer ms-P50 will be an excellent addition to our research imaging portfolio. In particular, we are excited to use this new capability to study the heterogeneity of the delivery of oxygen and nutrients in cancer during chemo- and radiotherapy, and also to link our findings with future clinical studies."
"We are thrilled to extend our collaboration with the 'Vision Lab' at Cambridge", says Christian Wiest, co-founder and CEO of iThera Medical. "For the last few years, we have successfully worked on various joint studies using our macroscopic preclinical and clinical imaging systems. Now we can leverage this partnership to establish our mesoscopic multispectral RSOM imaging technology in the field of cancer research."
