Prism Clinical Imaging, Inc. Awarded NCI Grant to Continue to Research and Innovation

Developers of brain mapping software receive support from National Cancer Institute

West Allis, Wisconsin - October 16, 2007 - Prism Clinical Imaging, Inc., developers of breakthrough brain imaging software, announced today that the National Cancer Institute (NCI) has awarded Prism Clinical Imaging a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant. Through the Phase I SBIR grant, Prism will receive approximately $200,000 over the course of one year in support for further research, development and innovation. This grant places Prism among the top recipient organizations of funding from active grants in the state of Wisconsin.

"The goal of the research is reliable, repeatable tumor measurement methods that will enhance rather than impede clinical workflow," said James L. Reuss, Ph.D., Prism's Chief Technology Officer. Through research and innovation, Prism has developed software that provides clinicians the ability to better diagnose, plan, treat and manage brain tumors and other neurological disorders.

Prism Clinical Imaging, Inc. qualified for the Phase I SBIR grant because it is an organized, for-profit U.S. business with less than 500 employees. The SBIR Program was established under the Small Business Innovation Development Act of 1982. The Act called for federal agencies with extramural research and development budgets of over $100 million to set aside 2.5% for small businesses. The National Institute of Health (NIH), which supports Prism with 3 other Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grants, participates in the SBIR Program.
