For in vivo visibility into anatomy, device placement, or bone healing, T3 Labs’ has the microCT, digital X-ray and fluoroscopy tools you need. Ex vivo microCT imaging, available at T3 Labs, provides very high resolution images of bone healing or growth into a device, or apposition with a device (metal or polymer).
Example: For a T3 sponsor in orthopaedic medical devices, specimens were already embedded for histology. However, the university lab had capacity for just one scan per day. The sponsor needed a better solution. T3 scanned 30 samples in fewer than four days delivering all and more of the analysis the sponsor needed.
For a heart valve implant, developers need not only good fluoroscopy, but echocardiography during the in vivo implantation process. Post harvest, microCT provides a detailed look at calcification in the value leaflets.
Example: For one major manufacturer of heart valves (among many other medical and commercial products), T3 Labs has provided hundreds of microCT images not available through their histopathology partner. We turned those images and analysis within days, providing valuable feedback on valve calcification and material characteristics.
For device compatibility and perfect images involving infarction and the healing of the cardiac muscle over time, MRI is the solution. T3 provides quick access to 3T and 1.5T MRI.
For gastrointestinal (GI) and general surgery procedures, device developers need high definition laparoscopic imaging equipment in-vivo. T3 has and knows how to use this equipment. Post-harvest, the same tools provide the visibility needed to find ulcers, calcification and other adhesions.
Innovators in interventional cardiology benefit from perhaps the largest array of imaging modalities guiding catheters into vessels, looking for emboli or aneurysms to name a few. T3 Labs has everything interventional cardiologists and their device makers need:
Only MRI and fluoroscopy produces the images of the target site needed for your neurovascular devices. T3 Labs can provide a 1.5T mobile MRI onsite and very near site access to 3T MRI.
