OGDEN, Utah, May 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Computerized Thermal Imaging, Inc. (CTI) , today announced successful installation of a Thermal Imaging Processor (TIP(TM)) at the University of New England (UNE) in Portland, Maine. Researchers at the UNE Biomechanics Research Laboratory completed installation of the CTI TIP(TM) system and related training during April 2006, equipping UNE with valuable imaging and data collection capabilities. UNE announced the use of the TIP(TM) system for a Peripheral Nerve Injury study earlier this month viewable on UNE's website http://www.une.edu/ur/news/thermalimaging.asp
Onsite installation of the TIP(TM) system and related training were provided by CTI within two weeks of the original order, equipping UNE personnel with the education and tools needed to begin valuable and accurate data collection. "We are pleased with the performance and quality of data collected from the TIP(TM) system thus far. CTI continues to work closely with the UNE staff to ensure customer satisfaction and to contribute program success," commented a spokesman from CTI. "The continued and growing role digital infrared imaging plays in aiding medical advancement and is illustrated by UNE's Peripheral Nerve Injury study. The UNE study is one indication of the value of CTI's digital imaging technologies and experience," the spokesman continued.
Principal researcher, Dr. Nancy Quick, Director of UNE's Biomechanics Research Laboratory, has started collecting data using the TIP(TM) system to quantify changes in blood flow during physical therapy treatment of peripheral nerve injuries. "The CTI thermal imaging system provides an innovative and effective manner of examining physiological changes that occur during the application of various physical therapy techniques used to treat nerve injuries that would otherwise be very difficult to measure," explained Dr. Quick. "The Information gained from this work will provide a framework for enhancing outcomes in the treatment of these disorders and will help guide future research in this area." The UNE study is funded in part by a training grant through the National Institutes of Health National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research -- National Capital Area Network Rehabilitation Research Network.
