The following list is a short bibliography of publications of
interest in bioimpedance.
Published in Milwaukee Magazine as first of top 10 medical breakthroughs in Milwaukee Wisconsin - Feb 2013
380 patients enrolled for EPET I and 50 patients enrolled for EPET II.
Received approval from Western IRB for a Feasibility Study of the FastPath™ probe in the surgical wound, study to be conducted in 2nd Quarter of 2014.
Received approval for a continuation of the ex vivo breast tissue study from Western IRB.
Early testing of the FastPath™ probe for use during Moh’s skin cancer surgery shows promise, will be investigated further.
Manuscript of results to date on Electrical Anomaly Mammogram currently under peer review for publication in a scientific journal.
As of July, 2013, we now have ISO ‘approved for human use’ surgical probes necessary to obtain an EU CE mark.
