Welcome To Near Infrared Imaging
Near Infrared Imaging (NII), and the scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, are introducing revolutionary new technologies for the visualization of veins, and for the detection and monitoring of brain injuries, malignant cancers, brain diseases, brain disorders, cardiovascular diseases (the #1 cause of death in the USA).
Our technologies are Enhanced Visual Methodologies (EVM) and Optical Ultrasound Tomography® (OUT). Our first device, the AVV-1, will soon be available for commercial sales. The AVV-1 prototype camera was recently evaluated by medical practitioners and patients and was compared to the leading selling vein illumination device on the market. The AVV-1 was easily the winner in the comparison due to its depth penetration, accuracy, ease of use and the ability to image the length of the vein. Our OUT technology will someday be incorporated into a portable camera to be used at the scene of the injury, in the ambulance, in the Emergency Room and on the battlefield.
NII holds Exclusive Rights to patents developed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) for Optical Ultrasound Tomography® and the AVV-1 device.
NII holds Exclusive Rights to patents developed at the City University of New York for imaging and illuminating veins.
NII holds Exclusive Rights to a patent developed at UCLA's School of Medicine using near infrared light to identify intracranial hematomas and brain injuries.
