Research provides validation of wide-field Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) for microstructural analysis of tissue from multiple organs and tissue types
TORONTO & DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$PINK.V #AI–Perimeter Medical Imaging AI, Inc. (TSX-V:PINK) (OTC:PYNKF) (FSE:4PC) – a medical technology company driven to transform cancer surgery with ultra-high-resolution, real-time, advanced imaging tools to address high unmet medical needs – announced two poster presentations at the Annual Meeting of the College of American Pathologists 2022 (CAP22), which took place October 8 to 11, 2022 in New Orleans, LA. The research presented validates the potential use of Perimeter S-Series OCT to intraoperatively image specimens across a variety of tissue types, such as breast, thyroid, kidney, liver, lung, colon, heart, pancreas, spleen, and adrenal glands:
- Validation of Wide-Field Optical Coherence Tomography for Microstructural Analysis of Tissue From Multiple Organs (Poster No. 108)
- Intraoperative Use of Wide-Field Optical Coherence Tomography to Evaluate Tissue Microstructure in the Oral Cavity and Oropharynx (Poster No. 170)
Andrew Berkeley, Perimeter’s Co-founder stated, “We were excited to present to leading pathologists at CAP22 with data that support the potential use of Perimeter’s OCT medical imaging technology across several tissue types, including the analysis of margins in head and neck surgery. This research helps demonstrate that Perimeter S-Series has the potential to be used in a variety of settings to help ‘bridge the gap’ between the surgeon’s need for immediate ‘real time’ info in the operating room with images that correlate to histological results, with a process that does not interfere with surgical procedures or final pathology.”
