Biomedical Engineering’s James Basilion helps develop new imaging technology

Cleveland-based Akrotome Imaging’s technology designed to help surgeons find, remove cancer

The Plain Dealer: James Basilion, associate professor of radiology and biomedical engineering, and two partners developed guided imaging technology that could eliminate the need for repeat lumpectomies. It won’t be the most exciting technology in the world, Basilion concedes. “But it works, and it’s simple,” he said. “It’s that impact that we think we have a leg up on the competition.”
