VivaScope® 2500: Innovative Instant Digital Pathology
Over the past century, the medical field has been developing exponentially.
With new methods and techniques being tested and implemented, the medical healthcare system is evolving to suit the fast-paced technological advancements. All that has fallen in favor of the diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that being are being digitalized.
When it comes to cancer detection processes, these are constantly improving from imaging to radiology scans to CT scans and even MRIs. However, these techniques may not be 100% accurate and biopsies remain the most accurate tests in detecting cancers.
During a biopsy, the doctor removes a small amount of tissue and examines it under a microscope, this sample is then analyzed and sent to laboratories for further examination for proper diagnosis. However, this procedure usually requires an operation, and the results of the biopsies may take time, which means the patient will need to be sutured and sent for surveillance.
Introducing VivaScope® 2500: Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopy
To reduce the downtime and avoid getting the patient to go through several operations, VivaScope® 2500 was developed to offer an innovative alternative that saves time, money, and material.
VivaScope® 2500 is a confocal laser scanning microscope designed specifically for the analysis of biopsies and the assessment of tumor margins during surgery. Samples can be examined directly after an excision without lengthy procedures.
The Workflow: How it Works
In a few simple steps, VivaScope® 2500 allows the direct assessment of the tissue in the operating room.
The Alternative to Frozen sectioning
When time is valuable and the patient is going through a sensitive and critical situation, it is crucial to have access to a fast and accurate diagnosis.
Consequently, VivaScope® 2500 is the ultimate solution for assessing tumor margins:
Other Medical Applications with VivaScope 2500:
VivaScope® can also be used in many other surgical workflows to improve patient management.
The technology has been validated in Dermatology, especially in Mohs surgery, as it reduced the time needed to complete the surgery by 50%.
Additionally, according to recent studies, VivaScope® offers new treatment pathways in urological procedures.
Finally, pilot studies have shown great potential for various fields such as lung, breast, thyroid, colon, and brain tissue.
By using the VivaScope® technology in various medical practices, there is no doubt that the digitalization of procedures will become faster and more efficient, which is positively beneficial for both patients and doctors.
