The motor uses no metal wire windings (one of the primary causes of image interference
under MRI), is capable of both linear and rotational movement, and can move forward and backwards several inches at nanometer increments, thereby providing a controllable drug release environment.
Nanotechnology is an important tool in our arsenal of solutions to help the biomedical device industry solve the challenging problems of MRI safety and image interference
Recent research by Biophan and scientists at the University of Rochester and Alfred University have confirmed that Biophan's coating technology can significantly reduce image interference
caused by metal objects (see press release, "Biophan Technology Enhances MRI Images," July 15, 2003, at www.
