SpinTech, Inc. Receives FDA 510k Clearance for Enhanced Brain Imaging Software
SpinTech, Inc. today announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market its SPIN-SWI software, the first in a series of MRI processing tools aimed at enhancing visualization of key neurovascular biomarkers. SPIN-SWI takes clinical data generated by existing MR scanners and employs proprietary post-processing techniques to provide enhanced visualization of small vessels and microbleeds within the brain. SPIN technology has been used to process over 7,000 research cases in the study of diseases such as traumatic brain injury, vascular dementia, stroke, and Parkinson’s, leading to over 100 published papers and over 10,000 research references.
“We are thrilled with this development,” says founder and Chief Science Officer Dr. Mark Haacke. “Receiving our first 510(k) approval validates years of hard work by our team and allows us to bring this important new technology to the clinical world where it can help millions of patients in need.” According to SpinTech CEO Ward Detwiler “this is a major milestone for us. With two additional already developed products in our pipeline, and multiple clinical and strategic partners engaged, 2018 will be an incredibly exciting year for the company.”
