Surgeons will be able to confirm their clinical diagnosis same day and eliminate the potential need for patients to take addition time away from work or leisure, to get the answers to their injuries. The mi-eye 2 technology allows the physician to immediately plan the care of their patient, can take the guesswork out of MRI’s, and patients will now be intimately involved with their surgeons in the care of their injuries.
