NinePoint Medical, Inc. Announces FDA 510(k) Clearance of a Real-Time Targeting Feature for the NvisionVLE Imaging System

NinePoint Medical, Inc. announced that it has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance to market its Real-time Targeting feature for its product, the NvisionVLE Imaging System. In addition, the first procedures with this new system were performed at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts. The NvisionVLE Imaging System employs proprietary Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) technology allowing physicians to perform a Volumetric Laser Endomicroscopy (VLE) procedure that produces real-time, high-resolution cross-sectional images. This system enables gastroenterologists to evaluate tissue for potential disease that may not be visible with conventional medical imaging technologies such as endoscopy and ultrasound. The NvisionVLE Imaging System was launched in the U.S. in late 2013. To date, over 5,000 VLE procedures have been performed at hospitals in the U.S. The addition of this Real-time Targeting feature allows physicians to not only locate, but now to mark areas of interest. This marking feature, in combination with an improved workflow, enables more accurate targeting, potentially to improved diagnosis and more effective therapeutic treatment options for patients. The NvisionVLE Imaging System provides a unique and clinically valuable new perspective of esophageal disease: The ability to image within the wall of the esophagus. By providing a high-resolution, real-time scan of the esophagus using Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) a technology similar to ultrasound but using infrared light rather than sound waves - the system enables physicians to view structures not evident with conventional imaging, and potentially identify disease that would have otherwise been missed. With the recent addition of a Real-time Targeting feature, physicians can not only locate, but now mark areas of interest. This marking feature, in combination with an improved workflow, enables more accurate targeting, potentially leading to improved diagnosis and more effective therapeutic decisions for patients. The NvisionVLE Imaging System has been cleared by the FDA and is commercially available in the U.S.
