Medical imaging technology company,, announced on Tuesday that it had delivered and installed its latest 9820 Xenon Polariser system at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto.
The Hospital for Sick Children, or “SickKids” is a major paediatric research and teaching hospital closely affiliated with the University of Toronto.
This latest system installation marks an upgrade for the hospital who were already in possession of an earlier model Polarean polariser having made a first order from the MRI firm earlier this year in June.
With a close focus on innovation in children’s health, the hospital will utilise its new unit upgrade to further expand its ongoing pediatric research programme using hyperpolarized gas imaging.
Giles Santyr, Senior Scientist of Translational Medicine at SickKids commented, "The purchase of this second polariser will significantly improve our capabilities to image children faster and with higher image quality, enabling several new paediatric lung MRI projects.
We acknowledge the generous support of the Canada Foundation for Innovation and the Research Institute of the Hospital for Sick Children, for helping make this new equipment possible."
Richard Hullihen, CEO of Polarean, added, "We have now delivered and installed our latest polariser, which is a significant set up in capabilities for the researchers at SickKids. We look forward to enabling their new discoveries in these critical projects."
