 NASA PROJECT TO FURTHER ULTRASOUND DIAGNOSTIC FRONTIERS
 CHADDS FORD, Pa., Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Supra Medical Corp.


(AMEX: SUM.EC), formerly Topox, Inc., announced that it had signed a memorandum of agreement with NASA's Langley Research Center under the NASA/Industry Fellowship Program. The intent is to capitalize on NASA's expertise in the area of ultrasonic systems synthesis and analysis to further advance the capabilities of Supra Medical Corp.'s unique ultrasound skin diagnostic instrument, the Supra Scanner(R).
 Evelyna Dyson-Cantwell, president of Supra Medical, said, "Our past collaboration with researchers at Langley has been most fruitful, and that augurs well for this endeavor. If successful, we expect to be able to satisfy serious medical needs now being poorly served."
 The company will assign employees to the project who are specially qualified to perform research in the area of ultrasound circuit design and testing for high resolution focusing. The NASA members for the project at Langley will be Drs. William T. Yost and John H. Cantrell.
