MR mammography vendor Caprius of Wilmington, MA, announced this month an agreement with Massachusetts General Hospital of Boston to install the company's Aurora system at the hospital's breast imaging division. The agreement is part of Caprius' program to partner with hospitals in revenue-sharing agreements based on Aurora usage, and Caprius and MGH will equally share the technical fee for each scan. The MGH deal is the company's sixth joint venture in the U.S. and brings the firm into partnership with the hospital's well-known director of breast imaging, Dr. Daniel Kopans. In other Caprius news, the company in April won credit lines worth up to $3.2 million, which it expects to use to fund installations of Aurora (SCAN 4/15/98).
