Cutting edge: West Cancer Center begins clinical trial using new AI imaging tech
West Cancer Center became the first site to perform a patient procedure using a new imaging tool that helps surgeons get clearer margins during breast conservation surgery. The procedure, performed in December by Dr. Richard Fine and Dr. Michael Berry, is part of a multi-center clinical trial that will test the effectiveness of an imaging device paired with artificial intelligence (AI). The imaging device, the Perimeter B-Series OCT with ImgAssist AI, provides real- time, ultra-high-resolution images… (Source: bizjournals.com Health Care:Physician Practices headlines)

She motions me in and reseats herself at a makeshift home office desk in her living room, sandwiched between a grand piano and set of enormous windows overlooking her front yard’s flower garden. It’s her remote base of operations when she’s not seeing patients or operating at the hospita...
