Our system can capture and maintain a 3D model on human tissue with <100 micron accuracy, in real time, during surgery. Any other scanner would capture a blur. In addition, our system can simultaneously analyze tissue, differentiating between bone, tumors, brain tissue (grey or white matter), etc. This allows surgeons to take all of the unhealthy tissue, while preserving the most healthy tissue possible. This will prevent the need for costly and risk additive intra-operative MRI's, making brain surgery faster and more accurate, preventing deaths and lifelong disabilities for patients. Hospitals will save billions in costs associated with failed, aborted, or prolonged procedures. This clinically accurate product can be used to guide surgical robots, or could be used on a drone to scan terrain.
