In other news, the company's Dornier Surgical Products subsidiary is conducting pilot studies on its Image Analysis System (IAS), which is designed to improve the treatment and detection of prostate disease. IAS allows physicians to see the extent of tissue destruction beneath the surface using existing ultrasound systems and Dornier's analysis console. The technique holds promise for identifying cancer within the prostate and in guiding the administration of transrectal biopsy, according to the company.
