Doctor-Led Webinar Sponsored by Perimeter Medical Imaging AI Highlights Developments in Intraoperative Specimen Imaging
Toronto, Ontario – (BUSINESS WIRE) – Perimeter Medical Imaging AI, Inc. (TSX-V: ROSA) (OTC: PYNKF) (FSE: 4PC) (“Perimeter” or the “Company”), a medical technology company that brings cancer surgery to life with ultra-high definition, advanced real time Imaging tools for addressing the major medical needs announced today that a physician-led webinar organized by Perimeter as an industry event through the American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBrS) is now available for playback on the Perimeter website.
Perimeter recently announced that it has received 510 (k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) (v2.1) imaging system, which enables tissue microstructures to be used during surgical procedures by providing cross-sectional imaging. to be examined are cutting real-time edge visualization. Perimeter’s technology was developed in close collaboration with experienced doctors and clinicians to ensure optimal integration into current surgical workflows and to meet the urgent need for real-time images to support edge visualization. Perimeter is now actively stepping up its commercialization efforts to bring its OCT imaging system to the US market.
The ASBrS webinar, titled “The Next Generation in Surgical Sample Imaging with Future AI Enhancements,” is ideal for experienced breast surgeons studying how optical coherence tomography (OCT), a high-resolution imaging modality commonly used in ophthalmology and cardiology, is ideal for Edge visualization is useful during surgery. In addition, the panelists will provide insights into the possible future uses of artificial intelligence (AI) in the operating room and for sample imaging.
The respected medical panel consisted of key opinion leaders including:
Dr. med. Hank Schmidt, Associate Professor of Surgery, Mount Sinai Medical School, Dubin Breast Center, Tish Cancer Institute, New York, NY
Beth DuPree, MD, FACS, ABOIM, Medical Director, Oncology Service Line Centers in Northern Arizona, Healthcare in Northern Arizona, Sedona, AZ
Alastair Thompson, BSc (Hons), MBChB, MD, FRCS (Ed.), Professor and Chief, Department of Breast Surgery, Department of Surgical Oncology, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX
Jeremy Sobotta, Perimeter’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “With our recent 510 (k) clearance, we are focused on bringing our novel OCT imaging system to clinicians in the United States. We are grateful to all valued panelists who have shared with fellow ASBrS members their views on new developments in specimen imaging and the potential to lower re-excision rates, improve patient outcomes, and reduce healthcare costs with Perimeter’s transformative and disruptive technology. I encourage those interested in learning more to access the on-demand replay of this presentation. In parallel with our ongoing commercialization efforts, we are advancing our proprietary AI technology through clinical development as part of our ATLAS AI project to support the advancement of our next generation technology platform. ”

About Perimeter Medical Imaging AI, Inc.
Perimeter Medical Imaging AI (TSX-V: ROSA) (OTC: PYNKF) (FSE: 4PC) is a Toronto-based company headquartered in Dallas, Texas in the United States. Radiologists and pathologists for the visualization of microscopic tissue structures during a clinical procedure. Perimeter’s OCT Imaging Platform is a point-of-care imaging system that enables clinicians to obtain real-time, high-resolution, sub-surface image volumes (1-2 mm below the surface) of an excised tissue sample. The ability to visualize microscopic tissue structures during a clinical procedure in addition to standard nursing tissue assessment for decision making during the procedure can lead to better long-term patient outcomes and lower healthcare system costs. Perimeter’s OCT imaging platform has been approved by the FDA as an imaging tool for assessing the microstructure of excised human tissue by providing real-time, two-dimensional depth visualization in cross-section with image review manipulation software to identify and annotate regions of interest. In addition, Perimeter is developing advanced artificial intelligence and machine learning image assessment tools to improve review efficiency through its ATLAS AI project, made possible in part by a $ 7.4 million grant granted by Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT), a leading government agency that funds cancer research.
The “PINK” perimeter ticker symbolizes the pink ribbons used by the Canadian Cancer Society and American Cancer Society during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This underscores the company’s commitment to helping surgeons, radiologists and pathologists fight perimeter imaging technology for breast cancer, which is an estimated 30% of all cancer diagnoses in women this year.
