PHILIPS TO USE NEURO SCAN PRODUCTS IN NEW MEG SYSTEM

 PHILIPS TO USE NEURO SCAN PRODUCTS IN NEW MEG SYSTEM
 HERNDON, Va., July 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Neuro Scan, Inc., a


manufacturer of advanced medical research products, announced today that the company has been selected by Philips GmbH, to be a supplier for a new magnetoencephalography (MEG) system under development. Philips GmbH is the medical equipment subsidiary of electronics giant, Philips n.v., headquartered in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
 The MEG system being developed by Philips records and images the magnetic fields that are generated by the brain. Using superconducting technology, this allows the researcher to better understand which areas of the brain produce magnetic and electric signals.
 Neuro Scan will be supplying to Philips 64 channels of electroencephalography (EEG) amplifiers and software for the ability to acquire EEG information at the same time as MEG data is being recorded. The new system will be installed at the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena, Germany, by the end of 1992.
 Dr. Stephen F. Sands, chairman of Neuro Scan stated: "We foresee the combination of several brain imaging technologies. At a recent conference in Amsterdam, one of the main topics of discussion was the merging of MEG and EEG plus the incorporation of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emissions topography (PET) data for a more rounded picture of the brain."
 The amplifiers supplied to Philips are a recent product introduction by Neuro Scan and are brand named "SYN-AMPS." Orders have already been received from several leading medical research institutions here in the United States, Europe and Australia. Negotiations are underway to also apply other brain imaging companies.
 Neuro Scan has been in operation since 1989 and has products in over 150 university and medical research facilities worldwide. The company has an engineering and manufacturing facility in Houston and technical support center based in El Paso, Texas.
