Small, robust and extremely non-magnetic! These are the qualities of the new micro-D connectors developed by Axon’ Cable. These miniature connectors are designed for devices, which rely on magnetism when operating. This is the case, for example, for MRI scanners where the magnetic field generated must remain constant and stable to obtain reliable and high quality 3D images.
The non-magnetic connectors developed by Axon’ Cable have not only a very low residual magnetic field (less than 1 nT – about 50,000 times lower than the earth’s magnetic field), but it is also almost impossible to magnetize them. They cannot, therefore, interfere with the magnetic fields produced by the magnets of medical imaging devices or particle accelerators used by scientists.
Motivation: Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) has in recent years become a popular treatment for primary tumors in the breast, kidney, liver, and etc. However, traditional approaches of guidance such as ultrasound and computed tomography (CT) fail to provide satisfactory placement precision. Although MRI guidance offers the ability to evaluate the completeness of the RFA, those procedures that are currently done using MRI are performed under “image guidance” rather than “continuous imaging”. The goal of this research is to build a multi-DOF device for breast biopsy/RFA that is MRI compatible and teleoperated with a haptic interface. We envision a “one-sitting procedure”, whereby identification of tumor boundaries, placement of the needle, assessment of placement accuracy, ablation, and assessment of ablation accuracy can be done in one sitting, without removing the patient from the scanner or disrupting tumor location, as shown in Fig. 1.
Job Description: Required Service engineers for Jaipur and Delhi for servicing and maintenance of the Diagnostic high end equipment such as CT Scan, MRI, Cathlab, Ultrasound etc. Candidate with relative experience will be preferred.
Scientists from India and Canada are collaborating on the development of a new imaging technology focussed on brain tumours. The bilateral project—Improving the Detection, Diagnosis and Treatment of Brain Tumours—is valued at almost US$1.7 million and aims to develop and commercialise software that will provide radiologists with enhanced automated imaging methods to detect and characterise brain tumours and enable accelerated assessment and treatment.
Leveraging $486,000 from ISTP Canada and additional funding from the Department of Biotechnology (DBT) in India, the team is tasked with creating a new imaging technology that automatically locates, maps and monitors tumour changes and combines MRI and PET image data into a single information-rich diagnostic tool.
