OGDEN, Utah, March 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Computerized Thermal Imaging, Inc. (CTI) , today announced placement of CTI medical equipment at University of New England's (UNE) Biomechanics Research Laboratory. UNE believes biomechanical and physiological response to nerve injury and neural provocation research will be receiving critical and valuable physiological data generated from CTI's unique digital infrared imaging camera.
UNE, located in Portland, ME, has contracted for the use of one imaging suite from CTI consisting of one Thermal Imaging Processor (TIP(TM)) to be implemented as a key component used for studies on Peripheral Nerve Injuries. The TIP(TM) system provides medical professionals a physiological view of the body, verses the anatomical view produced by other imaging modalities, such as x-ray and MRI. CTI understands UNE researchers plan to leverage CTI's most sensitive radiometric infrared camera commercially available to quantify changes in blood flow during physical therapy treatment of peripheral nerve injuries. By measuring temperature changes, TIP(TM) provides valuable images and data analysis allowing UNE researchers immediate, real-time feed-back. CTI is scheduled to install and train UNE's staff beginning April 3, 2006. UNE will commence its research immediately following the installation.
A spokesman for CTI commented "CTI is excited to be working with and providing technologies for UNE's upcoming Peripheral Nerve Injury study. These kinds of opportunities enable CTI to contribute to the advancement of medical understanding and ultimately the development of treatments for physiological ailments."
Dr. Nancy Quick, Director of UNE's Biomedical Laboratories, stated "the CTI thermal imaging system will provide an innovative and effective manner of examining physiological changes that occur during the application of various physical therapy techniques used to treat nerve injuries." She further commented by saying, "information gained from this work will provide a framework for enhancing outcomes in the treatment of these disorders."
