Diagnose Joint Injuries Without an MRI
“A Needle You Can See With” may change the traditional standard of care for diagnosing joint injuries.
The new device provides real-time visualization of the intra-articular joint space and a simple procedure optimized for use in the surgeons rooms
Reduced Patient Doctor Interactions
The traditional standard of care for the diagnosis of joint injuries involve up to 4 doctor-patient interactions:
- physical exam and x-ray
- MRI consultation
- surgical arthroscopy
Mi-eye+™ can reduce this process in half:
- physical exam and x-ray with in-office diagnostic using mi-eye+™, and
- surgical arthroscopy.
Easy to Use
The medical tech is a fully integrated and disposable solution that combines a camera, a light source, and access needle in a single-use device.
The Mi-eye2 is a wide-angle camera in a disposable needle with a USB-connected tablet meant to diagnose joint injuries without an MRI.
The Joint Diagnosis Process
Insert - After numbing a patient’s knee, shoulder, or other joint, a surgeon inserts the 0.09-inch Mi-eye2 needle.
View - Video from the camera shows a 120-degree view of the interior of the joint on the tablet, allowing the surgeon to spot tears and other injuries.
Competing in-office orthoscopic systems are bulkier, with thicker, non-disposable needles and bigger processors, and typically display only a 75-degree field of view.
