Headwall’s Spectral Imaging Sensors Aid Brain Cancer Surgery

Within Surgical Operating Suite, Hyperspec® Sensors Delineate Tumor Margins For Surgeons

Fitchburg, MA, March 8, 2016 — A European Union medical consortium has successfully deployed advanced hyperspectral imaging technology from Headwall in a brain cancer surgical trial that allows doctors to easily visualize the presence of hard to detect cancer tissue in the brain.  Hyperspectral imaging presents an advanced, highly resolved view of brain tissue, allowing doctors to very accurately discriminate between healthy and cancerous tissue in a non-invasive manner based on the chemical composition of the tissue.  

brain_tumor.jpgHyperspectral Imaging Cancer Detection (HELICoiD) is built around utilizing Headwall’s Hyperspec® sensors to deliver high spatial and spectral resolution, aberration-corrected imaging so that neurosurgeons can identify brain tumor margins for resection in real time.

“We are very excited about the success we have achieved thus far using Headwall’s Hyperspec instruments,” said Dr. Gustavo Marrero Callico, HELICoiD Program Manager and Associate Professor at University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.  “Distinguishing between normal and cancerous brain tissue is very difficult, which meant looking at new imaging techniques that could resolve those differences with a high degree of specificity. Headwall delivered exceptional spectral imaging technology and provided a solid basis for project collaboration and dialogue.”

Acquiring the valuable spectral data for the HELICoiD team were sensors operating in both the visible & near infrared spectral regions. “This Hyperspec® technology is extremely useful in demarcation of the specific tumor margins for surgical resection,” said Headwall CEO David Bannon. “It also results in a much more positive outcome for the patient as the neurosurgeon now has a visual spectral imaging technique for safely minimizing the amount of tissue to remove. Headwall is very pleased to be at the forefront of a medical program that took our technology and delivered astounding results.”

Additional integration work is underway now to move this technology forward and into additional trials worldwide.

Headwall Appoints Diessechem as Distributor for Italy

Italy’s foremost distributor of analytical instruments adds Headwall’s Hyperspectral Sensors and Raman Imagers

 

Fitchburg, MA, October 30, 2013 — Headwall has announced a new distributor partnership with Diessechem srl, with offices in Milan, Italy. The agreement between the two companies is effective immediately and forges a distribution relationship in Italy for Headwall’s award-winning Hyperspec® line of hyperspectral sensors and Raman imagers. Mr. Francesco Beccari, Product Manager for Diessechem, has extensive experience in spectral imaging and will be handling sales, support, training and deployment on behalf of Headwall.

Headwall diessechemIn announcing the appointment, Headwall CEO David Bannon remarked on the depth of spectral imaging knowledge at Diessechem. “From pharmaceuticals to food processing, to remote sensing, Diesschem is uniquely able to fulfill rising demand for Headwall’s spectral imaging instruments and custom spectrometers as well as provide the critical training and engineering assistance vital to every successful deployment.”

Diessechem, operating since 1993, will be managing Headwall’s hyperspectral and Raman imagers through its Diesseinstrument unit. Since the Company handles other complementary imaging technologies, Diessechem is able to provide end-to-end, application-specific solutions built around Headwall’s range of sensors. Mr. Beccari noted that Headwall’s hyperspectral sensors fit Diessechem perfectly: “Spectral imaging is much more than simply a catalog of products,” he noted. “Our ability to now offer Headwall’s industry-leading hyperspectral imagers across all our markets represents a very important advancement for our clients across Italy.”

Hyperspectral imaging can quickly and non-destructively image objects within the field of view to determine its chemical and spectral fingerprint. Headwall’s sensors take advantage of reflective diffractive optics, which use aberration-corrected gratings to deliver high performance with respect to high spatial and spectral resolution, high signal-to-noise performance, and a wide field of view. Remote sensing using small and light sensors mounted to small aerial platforms and manned aircraft is a fast-growing application area that Headwall has pioneered. Other application areas include advanced machine vision, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and mining & mineral exploration.
