- Medical-imaging technology company Polarean Imaging said it had delivered and installed a new system at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto.

SickKids was a major paediatric research and teaching hospital and already had an earlier model Polarean polariser, which was recently upgraded.

The new 9820 Xenon Polariser unit would expand SickKids' ongoing paediatric research programme using hyperpolarised gas imaging.

Their order was enabled by a grant from the Canada Foundation for Innovation.

Following the installation, the total number of the company's polarisers that are either installed or on order would be 24.
