Dusseldorf, Germany (PRWEB) June 19, 2010
The XCell-Center GmbH has teamed up with GE healthcare technology to bring its patients the latest in GE imaging technology: the newly introduced Signa Series 3.0 Tesla magnetic resonance scanner (MRI) and the new Discovery HD CT 750 scanner (CT) for applied diagnostics.
With the opening of Xcell-Imaging, its flagship high-definition imaging center in Dusseldorf, Germany, the XCell-Center has raised the bar for autologous stem cell therapy and research.
The GE Signa 3.0 Tesla high-resolution magnetic resonance scanner allows an unparalleled level of detail which facilitates characterization of brain, heart, and other tissue, making it ideal for the Xcell-Center’s work in applied stem cell therapy. High definition MRI plays a critical role in the characterization of cell markers which are used to assess treatment efficacy for applied stem cell therapy, as well as cell distribution throughout the organs and tissues. It also plays a key role in the planning and follow-up of stereotactic and endoscopic stem cell implantation into the brain.
The new Discovery HD CT750 CT scanner is a High-Definition & Ultra-Low-Dose CT. It allows unprecedented image detail while delivering extremely low radiation doses. For example, the CT750 is used to administer stem cells into joints with high precision, or to visualize stenosis and calcification of arteries throughout the body with unmatched precision, allowing differentiation of `soft` and `hard` plaques.
“We are very proud to offer our patients these exciting new imaging technologies. It is extremely important to investigate the effects of the stem cells and their distribution in such detail: The closer you look, the more you see,” stated XCell-Center CEO, Dr. Cornelis Kleinbloesem.
