'Where Technology Meets Science': Doctors, Medical Students Take Experimental Medtech For A Spin In Pittsburgh's Center For Surgical Arts

Some big-name device-makers – Medtronic, Stryker, Karl Storz, Siemens and more – are donating expensive capital equipment to the Center for Surgical Arts, a modern teaching lab that boasts 21 bays for training residents and fellows in various types of surgery. The companies are doing this to not only nail down future customers, but to test new devices, as well. The Center also includes a Bose test frame that was used to help clear Alphatec Spine's Solus device with US FDA without a clinical trial. "Those can be multimillion-dollar studies. So, to be able to do that, and to have the FDA feel comfortable with that, is kind of a cool capability," says Dr. Donald Whiting, chair of the Allegheny Health Network Neuroscience Institute.

Mauna Kea Technologies Takes Confocal Microscopy to the Tissues: An Interview with Sacha Loiseau

Originally a tool for biologists, confocal microscopy provides high resolution in vivo imaging of cellular and subcellular tissue structures in real time. As a clinical solution, the technology is meant to help bridge the gap between more imprecise macroscopic imaging technologies (such as MRI, CT, PET, high-resolution ultrasound, etc.) and microscopic techniques used in the clinical laboratory. Medtech Insight talks with Sacha Loiseau, PhD, president and CEO of Mauna Kea Technologies, a French medical device firm that recently launched its Cellvizio platform, an advanced confocal laser microscopy system with ultra-thin fiber optic microprobes.
