Workflow and productivity issues are also addressed with the new system with gains of up to 60 per cent additional anatomical coverage and resolution per unit time compared to conventional systems, increased acquisition speed over previous generations of 1.5T systems.GE’s Discovery MR450 features several new advanced applications, including: SWAN (T2 Star Weighted Angiography), which combines a unique 3D T2-based multi-echo acquisition with a special reconstruction algorithm. It generates several echoes, which are read out at different TE times, and compiles magnetic signatures of a range of tissues with varying degrees of T2 contrast.With SWAN, users can visualize major vessels and large vascular structures, accurately delineate small vessels and microbleeds, assess iron and calcium deposits in tissue and image the whole brain in 3D high resolution in just 4 minutes.The new GE suite of Inhance Non-Contrast Enhanced MR Angiography (MRA) applications is robust, fast and easy to use. Inhance sequences deliver consistent, reproducible images even in difficult-to-scan anatomies, for fewer rescans and confident differential diagnoses.For more information: www.gehealthcare.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) | August 01, 2019 | Jeff Zagoudis, Associate Editor FDA Issues Draft Guidance on Medical Device Safety in MRI Environment The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a new draft guidance titled Testing and Labeling Medical Devices for… read more Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.

Companies not paying austerity levy

first_imgOVER 160,000 registered companies in Cyprus have not paid a €350 annual levy imposed as part of austerity measures to prop up the economy, Company Registrar head Spyros Kokkinos has said.From 272,398 registered companies, only 115,790 paid the tax by the end of August, Kokkinos said. Over 60 per cent of companies had failed to pay the tax. If all companies had paid the levy this year before the end of July deadline, some €90.3 million would have gone into state coffers.The levy was introduced in 2011 along with a series of other measures to support the island’s economy. In its first year of introduction, a total of 94,591 companies paid the tax while some 115,790 paid in 2012.As of 2012, a penalty of €35 is incurred for a delay in paying up by up to two months, while a five-month delay draws a €140 penalty. A company may be stricken off the register if it delays paying beyond five months, and would need to pay €500 to get reinstated within two years of getting stricken off or else €750 beyond the two-year mark.Kokkinos said that launching procedures to get companies stricken off the record needed to be part of a “sensible” policy bearing in mind the debt crisis. He said that because some of these companies possibly owed money to government departments and individuals striking companies off the record was “far from helping the economy”.In addition, banks might oppose procedures if the companies have collateral with them, he said. “We do not have to rush things,” he said although he added they were obliged to uphold laws.From 2009 onwards, about 25,000 companies have applied to be taken off the register, Kokkinos said. Between March and May, following the island’s bailout, company registrations dropped by 50 per cent compared with the previous years, Kokkinos previously said.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoSenior Living | Search AdsCheap Senior Apartments in Rowland Heights Are Turning HeadsSenior Living | Search AdsUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
