The 0.46 mm optical coherence endoscope can safely image the internal carotid artery and its branches, where most intracranial aneurysms begin, creators of the mechanism explained.
Patients suspected of having AAS are analyzed using electrocardiogram-gated contrast-enhanced CT, but current use often leads to unnecessary downstream healthcare costs, among other pitfalls.
About 40% of individuals had scarring patterns on their heart muscle visible during imaging, which was associated with a greater risk of suffering a major cardiac event.
The system, known as Aspects, is the first neuroimaging solution in the FDA’s computer-assisted diagnostic software category to receive this designation.
