Perimeter Medical Imaging AI, Inc. (TSX-V:PINK)(OTC:PYNKF) (FSE:4PC) (“Perimeter” or the “Company”), a medical technology company driven to transform cancer surgery with ultra-high-resolution, real-time, advanced imaging tools to address high unmet medical needs, today announced the first commercial installation of its flagship Perimeter S-Series OCT system at a North Texas hospital.
Perimeter S-Series is a novel medical imaging system that uses Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) to provide clinicians with cross-sectional, real-time margin visualization (1-2 mm below the surface) of an excised tissue specimen across a variety of tissue types.
Jeremy Sobotta, Perimeter’s Chief Executive Officer stated, “We are extremely pleased to announce the first commercial installation of our Perimeter S-Series OCT system. This meaningful validation of our ‘go-to-market’ strategy is an historic event for the Perimeter team, our shareholders, the physicians with whom we collaborate, and the patients in their care. By enhancing a surgeon’s ability to visualize margins and microscopic tissue structures during a procedure, we believe our ground-breaking imaging technology will allow for optimal intraoperative decisions that increase the precision of surgeries.”
Steve Sapot, Perimeter’s Chief Commercial Officer added, “This installation of our Perimeter S-Series OCT device marks an important milestone achieved by our commercial team, who are connecting with innovators in healthcare institutions across the U.S. Our market development activities continue to accelerate and include extensive training and support for physicians. We are confident that this margin visualization technology will give surgeons added clarity to make better informed decisions real-time during a procedure.”
About Perimeter S-Series OCT
Cleared by the FDA with a general tissue indication, Perimeter is bringing its S-Series Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) system to leading surgeons in hospitals across the U.S., providing cross-sectional images of tissues down to 2mm depth, with 10x higher image resolution than standard x-ray and ultrasound. Perimeter S-Series OCT gives physicians the ability to visualize microscopic tissue structures at the point-of-care – during the primary surgery compared to days later when pathology reports are available – which has the potential to result in better long-term outcomes for patients and lower costs to the healthcare system.
