Advanced Imaging Firm Imalux Hires Ex-Philips Healthcare Executive, James Fulton as COO



8/5/2011 9:01:45 AM

Advanced medical imaging company Imalux has hired a former executive with Philips Healthcare for its newly created position of chief operating officer. James Fulton has joined the Cleveland-based provider of advanced medical imaging systems and will hold the title of president in addition to COO, according to a statement from the company. Fulton is a 30-year healthcare veteran, most recently holding the title of general manager of Philips’s computer tomography business unit. Imalux’s Niris Imaging System uses near-infrared light to produce high-resolution images of tissues in the body through a process called optical coherence tomography (OCT). The resolution of the Niris cross-sectional images is about 100 times higher than those produced by ultrasound, which uses sound instead of light waves to create images. Some early adopters of the technology — delivered through a light-emitting probe — used it to detect bladder cancer tumors and preserve nerves and blood vessels during prostate surgery.
