TORONTO and DALLAS, March 28, 2024 /PRNewswire/ - Perimeter Medical Imaging AI, Inc. (TSXV: PINK) (OTC: PYNKF) (FSE: 4PC) ("Perimeter" or the "Company") – a commercial-stage medical technology company – today reported financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2023 and provided a corporate update.

Adrian Mendes, Perimeter's Chief Executive Officer stated, "Reflecting on 2023, I am proud of the considerable progress made since I joined the company mid-year. After conducting a thorough analysis of the business, we focused on four main areas of improvement: strengthening the company's infrastructure to support our planned growth; redeploying clinical education resources to support commercial activities; developing clear roadmaps for our next-gen AI and non-AI products; and accelerating our clinical development plans. In particular, we successfully implemented an enhanced AI algorithm in our ongoing clinical trial evaluating Perimeter's proprietary, investigational B-Series OCT imaging technology combined with "ImgAssist," an AI-driven clinical decision support system created to enhance productivity and decision making in breast cancer surgery margin assessment."

Mr. Mendes continued, "As we enter 2024, patient enrollment is outpacing our original projections for our pivotal clinical trial. We continue to execute on our go-to-market strategy to 'seed the market' by adding surgeon champions and reference sites for our S-Series OCT technology, in support of our goal to broaden the user base after our proprietary AI is approved in a breast cancer indication. In addition, our pipeline of product innovations is growing, with several new product introductions and AI enhancements anticipated this year. This is an exciting time at Perimeter, as we solidify our position in our first market, expand our product portfolio and explore opportunities for market expansion, including additional cancer indications."

Highlights from 2023

  • Advanced ongoing clinical trial to reach important milestones, including the introduction of enhanced AI software and initiation of additional clinical trial sites at Mayo Clinic in Florida and University of Washington/Fred Hutch Cancer Center in Seattle, WA in support of accelerating patient enrollment
  • Built momentum within our network of expert adopters of our commercial Perimeter S-Series OCT and added additional clinical education support staff to remove identified bottlenecks in the sales cycle
  • Strengthened Perimeter's leadership, adding to the world-class medtech and AI experience on both the Board and Executive teams
