ADVANCED NMR SYSTEMS HAS FIRST SALE OF SCANNER TO A HOSPITAL USER

    ADVANCED NMR SYSTEMS HAS FIRST SALE OF SCANNER TO A HOSPITAL USER
    NEW YORK, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Paul Bullinger, president and CEO of Advanced NMR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANMR) announced today the company had received the first  purchase order for its Instascan High-Speed Imaging Accessory.  The device was acquired by a prestigious medical research center on the East Coast.
    The Instascan Accessory accelerates the image acquisition process of a conventional Magnetic Resonance Scanner up to 20,000X.  This means that diagnostic images from deep inside the body can now be taken in fractions of a second, rather than 20-40 minutes.
    According to Bullinger, several important university level institutions are preparing to acquire the Instascan System very early in 1992:  "Our short-term goal is to have several research sites utilizing our high-speed technology to solve their medical imaging problems by mid-year.  We believe this will generate a demand for the Instascan System in the many clinical imaging facilities across the nation," he said.
    "The system whose purchase we are announcing will be installed on the General Electric Magnetic Resonance Imaging System which is operated by the research facility," said Joe Saldarini, sales and marketing manager for Advanced NMR.  Over 1,100 such GE MRI Systems are currently in use in the U.S.
    "This is an important milestone for our company," said Bullinger, "Our system will be used by clinical imaging professionals to solve patient imaging problems which are beyond the reach of slower, conventional systems.  We will be receiving feedback from our sites on additional clinical uses for high-speed MR imaging."
