Imaging firm Advanced BioPhotonics has entered into a pilot research agreement with the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) - a teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School. As part of the agreement, BIDMC will be carrying out a clinical trial of the company's patented BioScanIR system, which it says provides a fast, noninvasive, radiation-free method for detecting diseases that affect perfusion and reperfusion in human tissue. The first phase of the trial is scheduled to begin in September 2007, said the Bohemia, New York-based company. The BioScanIR system uses the firm's proprietary DIRI - dynamic infrared imaging - technology, which has been developed for detecting and assessing pigmented lesions of the skin including melanoma and other forms of skin cancer.
