Project Description

Pathfinder Therapeutics, Inc. was a medical device company dedicated to increasing the effectiveness of surgeries and related procedures on abdominal and other soft tissue organs. Pathfinder was the first company to receive FDA clearance for a medical device to navigate liver surgery using preoperative medical images. Pathfinder’s products improve surgical precision by allowing surgeons to “see through” the organ they are operating on by registering the surgical instrument in three-dimensional space onto pre-operative patient medical images.  The company was acquired by Analogic in 2014.
