    New Clinical Data using the NvisionVLE™ Imaging System to be presented at Digestive Disease Week® 2014

    NinePoint Medical, Inc., an emerging leader in the development of medical devices for advanced optical imaging, today announced that new clinical data, by various investigators using its proprietary NvisionVLE Imaging System, will be presented in a series of 13 oral, video and poster presentations during Digestive Disease Week® (DDW®) 2014. The annual meeting will take place May 3-6 at McCormick Place in Chicago.

    The schedule for scientific presentations related to advanced optical coherence tomography (OCT) and the NvisionVLE Imaging System at DDW 2014 is provided below.

    The NvisionVLE Imaging System is indicated for use as an imaging tool in the evaluation of human tissue microstructure, including esophageal tissue microstructure, by providing two-dimensional, cross-sectional, real-time depth visualization. The safety and effectiveness of this device for diagnostic analysis (i.e. differentiating normal versus specific abnormalities) in any tissue microstructure or specific disease has not been evaluated.

The meeting showcases more than 5,000 abstracts and hundreds of lectures on the latest advances in GI research, medicine and technology. More information can be found at www.ddw.org.

    About The NvisionVLE Imaging System

    NinePoint Medical’s proprietary NvisionVLE Imaging System will enable physicians and pathologists to endoscopically view real-time, high-resolution, volumetric images of organs and tissues up to 3mm deep at better than 10 micron resolution. Utilizing an advanced form of Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) also known as OFDI (optical frequency-domain imaging), NvisionVLE provides treating physicians and pathologists with cross-sectional, volumetric digital images of a patient’s organ – including below the surface of the tissue, over very large areas. This imaging information can be used to aid clinician decision-making relative to biopsy placement or treatment planning. The NvisionVLE Imaging System is indicated for use as an imaging tool in the evaluation of human tissue microstructure, including esophageal tissue microstructure, by providing two-dimensional, cross-sectional, real-time depth visualization. The safety and effectiveness of this device for diagnostic analysis (i.e. differentiating normal versus specific abnormalities) in any tissue microstructure or specific disease has not been evaluated.

    Developed at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), NinePoint licensed the technology in 2010 as part of the largest intellectual property agreement for medical device technology in the hospital’s history.
