Success for Israeli medical High Tech !
The winners of The Wall Street Journal's 2004 Technology Innovation Awards competition have been announced. Innovators world-wide were considered.
The Gold award went to Sun Microsystems Inc of California for a wireless
approach to chip design. The Silver award went to Given Imaging Ltd of Yoqneam, Israel for 'PillCam', a tiny camera that patients swallow so that doctors can see their digestive tract. The Bronze award went to InSightec Image Guided Treatment Ltd. of Tirat Carmel, Israel for 'ExAblate 2000', a nonsurgical way to destroy tumors by focusing ultrasound waves on them. This is a wonderful achievement for Israel. From a world-wide search, Israel took two of the top three places. This should be celebrated by us and brought to the attention of the press world-wide. Israel often receives undeserved bad press. Let us counter this with
some positive images. Well done Israel !
