Polarean Imaging PLC installs second unit at SickKids hospital in Toronto

Polarean Imaging PLC (LON:POLX) has delivered and installed its latest 9820 Xenon Polariser system at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto.

The Xenon Polariser is a drug-device system that uses hyperpolarised 129-Xenon gas to make magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) more effective in assessing lung function.

‘SickKids’, a major paediatric research and teaching hospital, had been part of an ongoing research programme using an earlier model polariser that has been upgraded.

The second unit, which was enabled by a grant from the Canada Foundation for Innovation, will expand this research and bring Polarean’s total number of the installed and on-order polarisers to 24.

“The purchase of this second polariser will significantly improve our capabilities to image children faster and with higher image quality, enabling several new paediatric lung MRI projects,” said SickKids senior scientist Giles Santyr.
