RFPi Inc., named for Real-time Flow and Perfusion Imaging, is a Greenville, North Carolina-based medical device company committed to the development and commercialization of innovative and transformational platform technologies for non-invasive surgical imaging. RFPi’s FDA cleared iCertainty device and the underlying Multi-Spectral Physiologic Visualization (“MSPV”) technology platform enables surgeons to see real-time images of blood flow distribution and tissue perfusion without patient contact. RFPi’s patented and copyrighted iCertainty platform captures this critical data without dye injections, ionizing radiation, direct patient contact, or risk to patients or providers while imaging as often as needed to assess blood flood distribution in the procedure. This new knowledge and its documentation survive the procedure using the RFPi-ARMUS Cloud Repository and Surgeon Web Portal for further analysis of the procedural data and imaging.
