TORONTO and DALLAS, March 29, 2023 /PRNewswire/ - (TSXV: PINK) (OTC: PYNKF) (FSE: 4PC) – Perimeter Medical Imaging AI, Inc. ("Perimeter" or the "Company") – a commercial-stage medical technology company – announced the publication of a new white paper entitled "Use of adjunct wide-field optical coherence tomography to visualize margins during breast conserving surgery for ductal carcinoma in situ: a case series," which features three case studies from the commercial use of its innovative Perimeter S-Series OCT technology.
Perimeter S-Series OCT is an ultra-high-resolution medical imaging tool with FDA 510(k) clearance 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.
Dr. Amelia Tower, a board-certified general surgeon with advanced training in breast surgical oncology based in Fort Worth, TX, authored the paper and describes how she integrated the Perimeter S-Series OCT system into her breast oncology practice. She concludes that when assisted by Perimeter S-Series OCT in these three case studies, she was able to make intraoperative clinical decisions to excise additional tissue during the primary surgeries, sparing the three patients the need for a second surgery and relieving the associated burden on clinical, economic, and psychosocial resources.
Jeremy Sobotta, Perimeter's Chief Executive Officer stated, "We are encouraged and excited by the results from the case studies featured in this newly published white paper. We believe that bringing Perimeter's transformative ultra-high resolution medical imaging technology directly into the OR can assist the surgeon with real-time intraoperative margin visualization – with the aim of improving patient outcomes and reducing healthcare costs. The new white paper was also featured at the recent SSO 2023 International Conference on Surgical Cancer Care that took place in Boston, MA, where we connected with innovative, leading surgeons to educate them on the benefits of using Perimeter's technology in their surgical practices."
