United Hayek Set to Radically Change the MRI Landscape; Much Cheaper MRI Scans to Come

LONDON--(Marketwire - October 13, 2009) - United Hayek Industries announced today the release of a new device, The Hayek MRI-RTX, making MRI scans significantly cheaper using synchronized respiratory and cardiac motion. The new device allows coronary MRAs to be performed in half the scan time with higher navigator efficiency. This will allow many people to undergo MRA Imaging at a significantly reduced cost, and allow insurance companies to screen insurance candidates very cost effectively. Using this method of synchronized scanning, throughput of patients using scanners partnered with this technology will effectively be doubled, vastly reducing MRI scan costs, and making the scans more tolerable for patients.

The patented Hayek MRI-RTX removes the time constraints of breath-holding, and overcomes the limited efficiency of navigator imaging. It can also be used independently of the acquisition sequence to shorten scan times or increase image resolution. United Hayek is now working to make the technology compatible with an array of MRI scanners.

This technology could also be applied to many other types of MRI imaging.

Wolf Hayek, President and CEO of United Hayek Industries, commented, "We are very proud of this proven new technology, which is set to vastly change the MRI landscape, making MRI scanning not only more efficient and affordable, but also significantly more tolerable. I believe that for MRI manufacturers to incorporate this technology will be essential. Given a choice of scanner, it is obvious that healthcare providers would clearly go for a scanner that is able to do twice the work of other scanners."
