Imagin Medical is the developer of the ultrasensitive i/Blue Imaging System that will establish a new standard of care for urologists in detecting cancers and visualizing the surgical field in minimally invasive surgery. The Company’s initial focus is bladder cancer.
Vancouver, B.C. and Boston, MA, October 27, 2017 – Imagin Medical, Inc. (CSE: IME) (OTC PINK: IMEXF) (Frankfurt/Stuttgart Stock Exchanges: DPD2) (the “Company”) announced today that Roger J. Buckley, M.D., Chief of Urology at North York General Hospital in Toronto, Vice President of the International Bladder Cancer Group (IBCG), and a member of Imagin’s Scientific Advisory Board, attended the 37th Congress of the Society of International Urology held October 19 through 22 in Lisbon, Portugal. More than 3,000 urologists were in attendance.
The SIU facilitates the improvement of urological care worldwide through its collaborative research, education, and philanthropic activities; and this year’s innovative and impactful scientific program featured lectures and hands-on training courses from some of the most respected experts in the field of urology.
During the Congress there were interesting debates and presentations on the white-light vs. blue-light cystoscopy, which reflected differing opinions on time, cost and patient outcomes. Blue light cystoscopy improves the detection rate of urothelial bladder cancer and allows physicians to more accurately provide appropriate management of these patients. At this Congress, the Joint Consultation on Bladder Cancer of the SIU-ICUD (Society of International Urology-International Consultation on Urologic Diseases) recommended inclusion of Enhanced Cystoscopy as a beneficial adjunct to the detection and management of non-muscle invasive bladder cancer. Imagin considers all recommendations for Enhanced Cystoscopy as beneficial for bladder-cancer patients and Imagin medical. More information on this Congress is available at https://www.siu-urology.org/congress-2017/general-info.
Dr. Buckley stated, “Enhanced cystoscopy appears to be a significant improvement in bladder-cancer detection, and all indications are that Imagin’s i/Blue Imaging System will be a significant product in this market.”
Dr. Buckley joined Imagin’s Scientific Advisory Board in 2016, and his involvement and relationships in the international urology community are of significant value to Imagin as the development of the i/Blue Imaging System continues.
