Infiniti Medical, a leading provider of veterinary medical devices announces the release of ALICAM™, the world’s first ambulatory light-based imaging (ALI) device for dogs, at the Western Veterinary Conference in Las Vegas. ALICAM is intended for intraluminal visualization of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract as a tool in the detection of abnormalities of the GI system.
“ALICAM is the perfect all-in-one imaging solution for any veterinarian. Everything needed to perform a study is contained within a tiny, single-use capsule,” said Jared Finegold, CEO of Infiniti Medical. “We’ve eliminated the bulky equipment and the costs associated with traditional imaging techniques.”
Ambulatory light-based imaging is a revolutionary veterinary imaging modality based on the visible light spectrum (λ = 390-700 nm) that uses an array of photo sensors and an internal light source to generate high-resolution images in ambulatory patients. “This gives veterinarians unprecedented diagnostic access to the entire GI tract. ALI can provide a detailed diagnosis of what is ailing our pets while they go about their normal day,” said Dr. Jeffrey Solomon, Founding Partner of Infiniti Medical.
Using patented ALI technology, four cameras mounted inside the capsule capture 360-degree, high-resolution images that are stored in an on-board memory system. The dog swallows ALICAM, which takes thousands of panoramic images as it is propelled through the GI tract by peristalsis. Once the ALICAM capsule has completed its journey, the board-certified specialists at Infiniti Medical will partner with the veterinarian by providing a customized visual report. This report provides tailored treatment recommendations and is delivered electronically to the veterinarian for quick implementation. There’s no need to learn new software or how to interpret ALICAM images.
