Pavilion Surgery Center, an affiliate of St. Joseph Hospital, both in Orange, Calif., has announced a partnership with Perimeter Medical Imaging AI to issue the first commercial placement of the Perimeter S-Series OCT system in the state of California.
The Perimeter S-Series OCT is an imaging tool that allows surgeons real-time visualization of excised tissue, according to an Aug. 3 press release.
Michele Carpenter, MD, a breast surgeon at Pavilion Surgery Center, will supervise usage of the new technology.
"For years, breast surgeons have worried about not getting clean margins the first time they do a lumpectomy for breast cancer. With the Perimeter S-Series OCT system, we have a much better chance of doing that the first time," Dr. Carpenter said in the release.
