- Groundbreaking 3D imaging technology
- Device portability is a major advantage over current CT facilities
- Reduced exposure to radiation due to system’s enhanced speed and accuracy
Aligned with its broader focus of manufacturing and bringing disruptive medical imaging solutions to market, Imaging3, Inc. (OTCQB: IGNG) will be seeking FDA approval for its revolutionary 3D imaging device, the Dominion Volumetric Imaging SmartScan™ (DVIS). Using high-resolution fluoroscopy, the Dominion can be used as a reference for any current or new medical procedures and can replace several existing devices, such as a CT scanner, that are far more cumbersome.
The DVIS has several advantages:
- A 3D image, which can be viewed in CT-like slice through, is produced in one second
- Its mobility enables it to fit through any standard doorway
- It has multiple pivot points to facilitate minimal patient movement
- It does not require a shielded room
- It can be wheeled from the ER to the operating room
- It works on standard 120V wall outlet power
First developed a decade ago, this groundbreaking technology has the potential to transform the medical imaging industry, which is predicted to grow to almost $56 billion globally by 2025 (http://nnw.fm/TwIs1). The scanner developed by Imaging3 will produce 3D diagnostic images in Single 3D SafeScan and Continuous 3D Scan mode due to its unique O-ring design, and it is the only system in existence that can produce a combination of 2D, 3D and CT imagery in one device. The DVIS spins at a high velocity, being significantly faster and more accurate than conventional scanners, which greatly reduces the subject’s exposure to radiation. Additionally, the device uses technology that employs high-resolution fluoroscopy to view any part of the human body.
The portability of the DVIS is a major benefit, enabling it to perform the functions of several existing devices with significant cost savings for health care facilities. Portability in general is a major issue, especially in emergency rooms (ERs), where time can mean the difference between life and death. Triage staff will be able to use the Dominion to assess patients faster and reduce the risk of misdiagnosis.
Imaging3 is intent on developing devices that will change the face of medical diagnostics. The company’s diagnostic imaging system is multi-functional and can replace several existing devices. Besides resulting in considerable cost savings for medical facilities and health care centers, this device will be particularly attractive in countries which don’t have the health care budgets to support expensive CT equipment.
The DVIS could have a wide range of applications in the health care industry. It can be used by orthopedic surgeons to diagnose fractures and sprains without requiring the patient to move. The device can also be used to diagnose soft tissue problems and help with pain management or vascular issues. In addition to its multiple medical uses, the Dominion can be used in different industries that require fast and accurate imaging, such as agriculture, security, food, transportation and many more.
Imaging3 is currently preparing to pursue a 510K with the FDA for approval of the device. Software testing for the Dominion has already been completed, with hardware hazard testing, expected to take about three months, yet to be finalized, according to CEO John Hollister (http://nnw.fm/4Cjkx).
The company plans to file in the first half of the year. In addition to seeking FDA approval, Imaging3 will explore other uses for its revolutionary device by assessing which of the many potential markets will be its primary target. At the same time, the company will work on developing a final product, with plans to start commercializing the device in the first quarter of 2019.
