CHARLESTON, S.C., Jan. 12, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Revolutions Medical Corporation ("Revolutions Medical" or the "Company") (OTCBB:RMCP) is happy to report that it has received notice that Investigational Review Board (IRB) approval has been granted this month to the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine for the research project application titled 'Characterization of Intracranial Hemorrhages by Color MRI Automatic Segmentation,' by Dr. H. Keith Brown and his collaborators. With this new approval, the team of research scientists and clinicians will now begin collecting and analyzing diagnostic images from cases of intracranial hemorrhages using RevColor™, Rev3D™, and RevDisplay™ MRI software. The results of this important clinical study will be presented at scientific sessions throughout the country and submitted for publication in an appropriate medical image analysis related journal later this year.
This study along with the earlier work reported on August 16th 2010 on the 'Characterization of intracranial masses by color MRI automatic segmentation,' will be the basis for new developments targeting the characterization of head trauma injuries and brain tumors. Several important applications may be developed such as the detection and characterizing of sports injuries due to head trauma or concussions.
Tom O'Brien, President of Revolutions Medical, states, "It is great to see continued serious work being done with our proprietary color MRI software platform. Finally seeing key applications for the brain being performed by such credible scientific researchers gain traction, reinforces my belief that we are still on schedule to launch our first software as a service product for applications the second half of this year. This is just the beginning as interest continues to build for other clinical applications for our MRI software tools with various collaborators."
