Centerline Biomedical Completes Fifth Preclinical Study
As Centerline Biomedical, Inc. prepares to meet with investors, strategic partners and companies in the healthcare industry during the JP Morgan Healthcare Conference, it successfully completed a fifth preclinical study at Cleveland Clinic facilities evaluating its surgical navigation system, IOPS, the Intra-Operative Positioning System. This study was the most noteworthy Centerline study to date, demonstrating ability to track sensorized IOPS instruments precisely and efficiently, with enhanced 3-D visualization, without frequent exposure to cancer-causing ionizing radiation associated with current standard of care. Endovascular surgeries i.e. those which repair arteries using stents rely on X-ray fluoroscopy, which provides limited two-dimensional visualization, leading to long procedure times while exposing surgeons and patients to damaging radiation. IOPS, originally developed at Cleveland Clinic, uses a 3-D model of a patient's vascular system to track instruments precisely without ionizing radiation, with the goal of reducing procedure times, complication rates, and overall costs. The mathematical algorithms used to generate the 3-D model are currently being used to revolutionize minimally invasive surgery, with future applications in surgical training and clinical decision support.
