nals more clearly view, and rapidly extract important diagnostic information about, the bodys structures or disease processes.
The new system will be available commercially and improve upon current technology, in terms of image quality and cost-effectiveness. It is compatible with all imaging devices, will translate and display data immediately and in its entirety, and allows for user-friendly manipulation of the data for evaluation and analysis.
Gregory Wilson, associate vice president for economic development and strategic partnerships says the license agreement represents a first for Kent State University.
"This is the first novel imaging system licensed from the university," Wilson says. "The agreement illustrates the diversity of research activity and commercial potential within the Kent State University system."
Standing Rock Imaging, LLC, has committed to maintaining a presence in Northeast Ohio, and hopes to employ residents of the region in the further development and production of the technology.
