Rick Fort, President and COO of CereScan, was interviewed by W3W3’s Larry Nelson about CereScan’s state of the art technology, and focus to assist elderly people having memory problems or who feel like they're not solving problems as well as they used to. They also discussed the launching of a study to work with veterans who have been exposed to numerous concussive events. The study will look at a specific treatment for TBI, [Traumatic Brain Injury]. The symptoms of TBI are varied. Rick mentioned, “We are also looking at a study of Alzheimer's patients. CereScan will do a pre-treatment scan and then a post treatment scan. What our scans are measuring are organic changes in the brain, following treatment.” To hear the entire interview, please click on this link: INTERVIEW

Back-to-back summits and brain scans to completment high altitude neurological studies

This May, local mountaineer Mike Moniz successfully summited Mount Everest (29,029 feet) and Lhotse (27,940 feet) only 24 hours apart. After consecutively climbing the worlds tallest and fourth-tallest mountains with the International Mountain Guide (IMG) Classic team, Moniz headed for home with an extremely rare condition. Extreme for his plan to gather millions of data points from the highest peaks on earth, and rare because he plans to keep all the data in his head.

Denver, CO  February 8, 2012 – CereScan’s vice chairman of the board of directors, John Q. Adams Sr., was interviewed by the New York Times regarding his many successes in investing and building very successful companies in the pharmaceutical industry.

In 1997, John Q. Adams Sr. had the opportunity to buy back the assets of his former drug company, Adams Laboratories. Six years earlier he had sold it to Medeva, a British drug manufacturer, for $100 million. He negotiated to buy the manufacturing plant and rehire the management team and the drug developers for a mere $3.5 million.

This past week, Medscape posted an interesting article about a study which examines brain function in children with ADHD. Dr. Li and colleagues used functional brain imaging to look at the brains of adolescents who have been diagnosed with ADHD.  The study, performed on 20 children diagnosed with ADHD and 15 children with no clinical diagnosis, found that brain function plays a larger role in the disorder than previously thought. The article cites Carol Rumack, MD, from the University Of Colorado School Of Medicine in Denver explaining how “pediatricians and pediatric radiologists worry that too many children are being labeled with ADHD and being given methylphenidate and other drugs, when in fact, they might not have ADHD at all.” Since some of the symptoms of ADHD mimic those found in other disorders, it is important to be certain about a diagnosis before a medication, such as a stimulant, is recommended. CereScan uses SPECT Brain Imaging as a tool to examine the functional properties of the brain. This can help with a more accurate diagnosis of ADHD in children and adults.  Medscape’s article is a great read, the link is posted below.

Brain Function Disturbed in Kids With ADHD – Fran Lowry

By CereScan

The Psychiatric Times recently published an article discussing problems of overdiagnosis and overprescribing medications in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It is an interesting review of what is known about the diagnosis of ADHD in children and adolescents as well as the prevalence of stimulant prescribing rates in children in the US.


Interestingly, the Wall Street Journal also posted an article exploring the topic of ADHD.  This article looks into how brain structure and function play a role in causing ADHD in children.  With the help of functional brain imaging, scientists identified one of the areas of the brain that may be causing inattention symptoms in children who may have ADHD.

SPECT Brain Imaging has been proven to assist physicians in identifying the presence and absence of ADHD in children and adults.  CereScan uses SPECT Brain Imaging as an objective tool to help with the diagnosis of ADHD as well as to differentiate it from other disorders with similar symptoms. Below are links to the articles published by the Psychiatric Times and the Wall Street Journal.
