FDA special 510K achieved

With a new energy boost we are now starting to prepare our participation at CMR in Barcelona (Jan 2018). FDA has approved the special 510K for our second generation MR compatible guide wire, and we are awaiting CE approval also soon.  Next year you will see us at Barcelona CMR 2018, the world symposium on Pulmonary Hypertension (Nice) and AEPC 2018 in Athens. Let’s roll.

MedFit meeting Grenoble: eye-opener for the future

On June 28th and 29th 2017, Nano4Imaging participated in the first edition of the MedFit meeting in Grenoble’s (France) Alpexpo.  The set-up was unique in a mix of very lively panel discussions on different angles of medical device development (regulation, collaboration, investment and innovation) and was an inspiring environment and scale to meet with leading experts from corporates, VCs, serial entrepreneurs and start-ups. An inspiring mix of people and topics that deserves further extension on European level, where revitalisation of the classical MedTech meetings is welcome..

EuroCMR 2017 in Prague was attended by 1022 participants, which was another 35 % rise  over Florence last year.The meeting was between 25- 27th of May and hosted by the Clarion Congress Hotel in Prague (CZ). Topics included Big data and CMR ( S Petersen) and impressive contributions on the Improving of heath care through Imaging (Joerg Schwitter) as well as Imaging Biomarkers controversies (G. Cole). A good opportunity for Nano4Imaging to meet its clinical relations and plan further clinical work.

Dr Pushparajah (KCL) showed an excellent overview of the MRI guided catheter procedures including data of our recent PMCF in Munich.

Dr Vivek Muthurangu, as always made his take home message on MRI in Pulmonary hypertension simple: go out and do it!!

Ralf Raue Innovation award at Biomedica Eindhoven

Nano4Imaging is the proud winner of the first Ralf Raue Innovation award, as a reward for its continuous and extensive cross-border cooperation between Germany and Netherlands. On May 10th our CSO Paul Borm proudly accepted the price handed by Ria Hein (Brabant Investment) in the Auditorium at Technical University Eindhoven. The motivation of the jury reads” there are no borders for Nano4Imaging since it just uses the expertise wherever it is in Europe“. It further states that N4I has very strong links with clinical centers in the Netherlands (Maastricht, Utrecht, Nijmegen) and joint development projects with these clinical centers.

Cardiac real-time MRI again showcase: now at ISMRM

After the live case in Washington at SCMR2017, now also ISMRM which gathers more then 5000 specialists in MRI, had a live broadcast of real time cardiac MRI in a plenary session on April 25th. Among several speakers it was prof. Razavi who explained the value of interventional MRI in cardiac diagnostics and interventions. His research group at King’s College London has been the first to apply real-time MRI to congenital heart disease more than 15 years ago.

TED talk with Nano4Imaging technology explained

On February 13th 2017, Paul Borm (Founder and CSO of Nano4Imaging) gave a TED talk in which he talks about innovation as results of energy explosions. During his talk he brings nanotechnology forward as a discipline that needs cross-border collaboration to understand the use and applications of new (nano)materials. To explain this he shows a movie a MRI guided stenting in a pig renal artery during his talk. He also stresses the importance of open innovation.

Landmark live case at SCMR 2017

Today (February 3rd 2017) at SCMR in Washington DC, a live case of MRI guided intervention was shown for a full audience of MRI experts, for the first time watching such an event in an MRI meeting. While being quite common in cardiology, the session is a landmark for MRI guided cardiology procedures and an event to remember. Thanks to Robert Lederman (NIH) for organizing and moderating this event. Later on the same day Christian Meierhofer (DHZ Munich) presented data on the 25 patients done in Munich in out PMCF.

Pulmonary Hypertension- adult application

In 2018 several of our clinical users have initiated screening and diagnostic programs usinfg right heart cath to evaluate pulmonary artery pressure in CMR instead of using the cathlab. Royal Free Hospital (RF) in London is the center that want to move this into routine in 2019, based on their successful application in 50 patients in 2018. During this time period they have also helped other teams in setting up for iCMR procedures. At SCMR 2019 in Seattle dr Knight will present the outcome of the first year clinical application. We are anxious to see whether department time and catheter time have further decreased.
