NvisionVLE Imaging System from NinePoint

The NvisionVLE Imaging System, with Advanced OCT, uses an optical signal acquisition and processing method to create more complete cross-sectional images—letting you evaluate 100% of the tissue in a 6cm scan to better inform your evaluation. 3mm deep. 6cm long. At a resolution of 7 microns. In real time.

The NvisionVLE Imaging System is indicated for use as an imaging tool in the evaluation of human tissue microstructure, including esophageal tissue microstructure, by providing two-dimensional, cross-sectional, real-time depth visualization. The safety and effectiveness of this device for diagnostic analysis (i.e. differentiating normal versus specific abnormalities) in any tissue microstructure or specific disease has not been evaluated.

Advantages:

  • Captures images up to 3mm beneath the mucosa at a 7 micron resolution in real time—unlike white light endoscopy, which can only image surface detail
  • Offers a full-field view (~10,000mm2), as opposed to a “point” image typically obtained with confocal microscopy (0.25mm2)
  • Advanced Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) imaging delivers up to 25X higher resolution than endoscopic ultrasound
  • Provides a dramatic increase in imaging speed and improved image resolution, compared to first-generation OCT systems
