Needle Vision

Our mission is to allow doctors to see what the needle tip sees, protect patients from complications in higher risk needle procedures, and ultimately open new frontiers in diagnostics.

A New Ultrasound Tool To Image The Most Delicate Parts Of The Body

Ultrasound technology has revolutionized imaging the world over. Yet despite the miraculous pictures generated by Ultrasound, there are certain parts of the body that are difficult to see. This becomes critically important in circumstances such as epidurals, amniocentesis, breast reconstructive surgery, and procedures behind bone or other ultrasonic obstructions. Needle Vision, Inc. is developing forward looking ultrasound needles using the patented VARS technology.

Needle Vision will offer the clinician a new ultrasound attachment. Rather than only having a wand style ultrasound that is limited to the outside of the body, the forward looking ultrasound needles can be inserted to the affected area for more precise viewing and delivering of anesthetic or other treatment as necessary

A new tool to image the most delicate parts of the body!.

Our patented imaging steering system uses an angle faced acoustic transducer combined with an internal rotating variable-angle reflecting surface (VARS).
Our biomedical Imaging equipment will be priced low in a “razor blade” like HW/SW as a service model that will achieve rapid market penetration, and drive recurring sales of disposables, and subscriptions to a reference imaging data base.
The new patented design effectively eliminates blind spots directly in front of the needle, reducing the risk experienced by anesthesiologists administering spinal, epidural, and caudal anesthesia (~2.4M procedures a year), and by diagnosticians and surgeons utilizing hypodermic needles in millions of high risk procedures.

"The opportunities are significant, particularly since a major percentage of our target device market is unaware that an imaging needle approach could solve their clinical guidance problems."
