BiTMICRO, Storm Company and NanoSignal Focus on MRI Technologies

6/3/2004 - BiTMICRO Networks(r), a pioneer in intelligent flash IDE/ATA, SCSI, USB, VME, PMC, CompactPCI, FireWire, Ethernet, and Fibre Channel solid state storage solutions, has formed a three-way technology partnership with Las Vegas, Nevada-based NanoSignal Corp. [OTC:NNOS], and systems integrator Storm Company to develop industry leading, next-generation image processing technologies for the MRI market.

SLICES(tm) is an image processing software that manipulates raw data matrices obtained through the MRI scanning process. It is being incorporated into an E-Disk(r) enabled hardware console, currently under development by Storm Company, a Las Vegas-based systems integrator and technology consulting firm. When completed, NanoSignal Corp. [OTC:NNOS] intends to market this console as an add-on to enhance the performance of MRI systems worldwide, including those manufactured by General Electric, Hitachi and Siemens, among others.

The alliance is currently conducting extensive beta tests using the E-Disk(r) flash drive as main storage component. Initial results produced magnetic resonance images that boast up to 10 times more clarity and resolution than conventional MRI tools. In addition, SLICES(tm) significantly reduced patient scan time and the need for patient callbacks and rescanning.

"Nanosignal's objective is to bring to market the most innovative solution that will speed up patient scan time and provide clearer MRI images than conventional MRI equipment. After evaluating various alternatives, we have concluded that BiTMICRO's E-Disk(r) solid-state flash drive is the best storage platform for our software. Storm Company's expertise will ensure that the capabilities of E-Disk(r) and SLICES(tm) are properly optimized," says Scott A. Ervin, CEO of NanoSignal Corp.

When NanoSignal is ready to commence marketing its console, Storm Company will supervise commercial production, shipping, installation and user training. "All of these functions will be performed by our global network of sub-contractors. This is the best way to maintain our strict quality control standards," stated Antonio Roel Macaraeg, president of Storm Company.

"BiTMICRO is creating a new era in non-invasive medical diagnostic technology by bringing E-Disk(r), a popular solid-state storage solution for military and industrial applications, into the health care industry," says Rudy Bruce, president of BiTMICRO Networks. "Our strategic alliance with NanoSignal and Storm Company gives us an unprecedented opportunity to save lives, not in the battlefield but this time in hospitals and medical clinics all over the world," he adds.
