DANVERS, Mass., Aug 06, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- NeuroLogica Corporation, a medical device company, announced today that it has received approval from the Mexican Ministry of Health's Comisin Federal para la Proteccin contra Riesgos Sanitarios, COFEPRIS, for CereTom(R), a portable multi-slice CT scanner for the head and neck. COFEPRIS clearance allows CereTom(R) to be sold in Mexico.

The CereTom(R) is an 8-slice small bore portable CT scanner that delivers the highest quality Non-Contrast, Angiography, and Contrast Perfusion scans in a variety of patient locations. Its combination of rapid scan time, easy to use interface and immediate image viewing make CereTom(R) an indispensable tool for any clinician needing real time, high quality images.

"Receiving this certification from the Mexican Ministry of Health represents a great leap for NeuroLogica," says Dr. Eric Bailey, CEO of NeuroLogica. "The certification signifies that we have met the rigorous clinical, safety, quality, and performance standards set forth by COFEPRIS and demonstrates the commitment we have to our future customers."

The battery powered CereTom(R) can be easily transported from room to room, similar to the widely used portable chest X-ray systems. CereTom(R) is DICOM 3.1 compliant and compatible with all PACS, surgical navigation, electronic medical records, and planning systems. Its unique capabilities provide high quality CT images wherever needed, including the clinic, ICU, OR and Emergency/Trauma Department.
