Dusseldorf, Germany (PRWEB) June 19, 2010 -- The XCell-Center GmbH has teamed up with GE healthcare
technology to bring its patients the latest in GE imaging technology: the newly introduced Signa Series 3.0 Tesla
magnetic resonance scanner (MRI) and the new Discovery HD CT 750 scanner (CT) for applied diagnostics.
With the opening of Xcell-Imaging, its flagship high-definition imaging center in Dusseldorf, Germany, the
XCell-Center has raised the bar for autologous stem cell therapy and research.
The GE Signa 3.0 Tesla high-resolution magnetic resonance scanner allows an unparalleled level of detail which
facilitates characterization of brain, heart, and other tissue, making it ideal for the Xcell-Center’s work in applied
stem cell therapy. High definition MRI plays a critical role in the characterization of cell markers which are used
to assess treatment efficacy for applied stem cell therapy, as well as cell distribution throughout the organs and
tissues. It also plays a key role in the planning and follow-up of stereotactic and endoscopic stem cell
implantation into the brain.
The new Discovery HD CT750 CT scanner is a High-Definition & Ultra-Low-Dose CT. It allows unprecedented
image detail while delivering extremely low radiation doses. For example, the CT750 is used to administer stem
cells into joints with high precision, or to visualize stenosis and calcification of arteries throughout the body with
unmatched precision, allowing differentiation of `soft` and `hard` plaques.
“We are very proud to offer our patients these exciting new imaging technologies. It is extremely important to
