Providence is the capital and the most populous city of the U.S. , September 8-9.
The Joint Molecular Imaging Conference unites medical professionals and scientists with state of the art technology. Scientists and researchers from around the world will have the opportunity to learn about the Imagio[TM] research device that uses Seno's patented laser opto-acoustic imaging technology.
Janet Campbell, CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization. Typically the president of the company, the CEO reports to the Chairman of the Board. of Seno, recently announced a $2(M) investment by the State of Texas' Emerging Technology Fund.
"Our opto-acoustic technology will be presented for the first time as a commercial product as the Imagio[TM] research device. I am pleased that Seno has the opportunity to introduce this technology to such a distinguished group of researchers. Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies Top 100 Biotechnology Companies
The following is a list of the top 100 biotechnology companies ranked by revenue. The first nine companies qualify for the list of the top 50 pharmaceutical companies. will also be able to utilize Imagio[TM] for the acceleration of cancer research and drug discovery," said Campbell.
Imagio[TM] technology produces real-time color images A (digital) color image is a digital image that includes color information for each pixel.
For visually acceptable results, it is necessary (and almost sufficient) to provide three samples (color channels which distinguish between benign and malignant growths for all solid tumors and is expected to be a breakthrough for cancer detection. The research device produces detailed, full-scope images of small laboratory animals, such as nude mice. The image contrast is related to both blood volume and oxygenation oxygenation /ox·y·gen·a·tion/ (ok?si-je-na´shun)

In addition to the September 9 launch of the Imagio[TM] research device, to honor Conference participants Seno will also sponsor Waterfire Providence, an award-winning fire sculpture exhibit and performance spanning three rivers Three Rivers, Que., Canada: see Trois Rivières. that serves as a moving symbol of Providence's renaissance.
