Dover, Delaware–(Newsfile Corp. – October 21, 2020) – Encode Ideas, L.P. Initiates Research on Perimeter Medical Imaging, AI (TSXV: PINK) (FSE: 4PC). The full research publication is available here and available on our website at www.encodelp.com. A summary follows:
Encode Ideas, L.P. is initiating coverage on Perimeter Medical Imaging AI, Inc. as a High Conviction Investment Idea. Perimeter’s Optical Tissue Imaging System, or OTIS, is an FDA 510(k) cleared optical coherence technology (OCT) that can rapidly image large tissue surfaces, such as an excised tumor, at 10-100x the resolution of ultrasound or MRI. OTIS can fit seamlessly within a surgical suite, allowing for intraoperative tumor tissue imaging, in order to determine if positive margins remain, and additional tissue should be removed. Initially, Perimeter will be focused on breast conservation surgery (BCS), also known as lumpectomy, where it is estimated that between 20-30% of women will require a repeat surgery due to positive margins being found via histology 2-5 days after the initial surgery. Currently, there are limited options for intraoperative tissue assessment, and those available are expensive, inconvenient, and cannot be scaled easily. OTIS has the potential to become part of the BCS standard-of-care, which we estimate to be an annual addressable market of $400mm in the U.S. BCS is the near-term commercial focus for Perimeter, but, once installed, we expect surgeons will utilize OTIS in other intraoperative settings. When considering the platform potential of OTIS across other intraoperative indications, the total annual addressable U.S. market grows to >$1b.
