Thermimage awarded 2008 Utah Centers of Excellence Grant

March 1, 2009 (Salt Lake City, Utah) – Thermimage Inc announces it has been awarded an additional $100,000 grant adding on to the $100,000 grant provided in mid-2008 from the Utah Center’s of Excellence as part of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development program. "This additional grant is highly beneficial to the company," said Doug Turnquist, President & CEO of Thermimage. "These proceeds will be utilized to conduct additional testing moving towards expected product launch in 2011."

Thermimage Inc was founded in February 2007 to commercialize a non-invasive, painless and less costly way to produce deep-tissue temperature measurements. The device will first be used to diagnose Vesicoureteral Reflux (VUR) in children, a dangerous condition that allows urine to backflow into the kidneys of young children. The current procedure is painful and requires the use of catheters and ionizing radiation, where this new technique will heat the contents of the bladder and then detect any increase in temperature in the kidneys signaling reflux.
