The medical imaging industry continues to grow, saving countless lives, as even small providers can now realize a hefty return on their investment in a relatively short time
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 25, 2012
MissionIR would like to highlight FluoroPharma Medical, Inc. (OTCBB: FPMI). FluoroPharma Medical is a biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering and developing patented Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging products to improve patient management by evaluating cardiac disease at the cellular and molecular levels. The company is currently advancing two products in clinical trials to fulfill critical unmet medical needs.
Today, Seeking Alpha published the following article featuring FluoroPharma Medical: http://seekingalpha.com/article/321920
The article titled “Medical Imaging Stocks” reviews the significance of medical imaging, one of the top medical developments of the last millennium, and the principle imaging technologies used today. The medical imaging industry continues to grow, saving countless lives, as even small providers can now realize a hefty return on their investment in a relatively short time.
Unique in its ability to get down to cellular processes, PET, a cutting-edge, rapidly growing branch of nuclear medicine, uses short-lived radioactive chemicals that can, depending upon the chemicals used, provide vital information regarding neurological diseases, heart disease, and cancer. Unlike traditional imaging modalities - MRI, CT, and Ultrasound - that reveal the anatomical abnormalities and cause for disease, PET provides insight into physiology and can detect disease before anatomical manifestation is identified.
FluoroPharma Medical does not focus on PET equipment, but rather the critically important imaging agents, the chemicals that allow PET technology to see the cellular processes associated with heart disease and other major diseases. Clinical trials have already confirmed FluoroPharma's imaging agents are safe and are now establishing their efficacy.
The company's broad technology platform was developed by scientists at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. FluoroPharma Medical has four issued U.S. patents, with seven pending applications, together with strong international protection. According to GAI, the market for molecular imaging agents currently exceeds $1.7 billion annually and promises rapid growth for the foreseeable future.
