TechniScan scores NCI grant

Ultrasound breast imaging technology developer TechniScan Medical Systems has received a $100,000 grant from the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) grant is a Phase I laboratory feasibility study to determine the synergistic benefits of combining vibro-acoustic emission (VAE) technology with TechniScan's ultrasound CT quantitative ultrasound inverse scattering tomography, according to the Salt Lake City-based firm.

TechniScan founder and principal investigator Steven Johnson, Ph.D., will lead the research, while VAE technology co-inventors James Greenleaf and Mostafa Fatemi, Ph.D., of the Mayo Clinic will also participate in the project. TechniScan said it will license the VAE technology during the project from the Mayo Clinic, which is a subcontractor on the grant.
