October 31, 2016 Halt Medical announces an exclusive license to InnerOptic's patented AIM guidance software, for the Halt Acessa Guidance System. The Acessa Guidance System incorporates Aim with electromagnetic tracking technology and radiofrequency ablation to treat symptomatic uterine fibroids laparoscopically. When coupled with ultrasound, it provides instant feedback of device trajectory to the targeted fibroid and tracks the surgical instruments in real time. This is the first time in history that this technology has been applied in the field of gynecology.

June 14, 2016 – InnerOptic issued a needle navigation patent, "Image Management in Image-Guided Medical Procedures." , filed on January 28, 2014. This groundbreaking invention covers aspects of InnerOptic's Spotlight system and represents an important advancement in visualization and navigation for CT/MRI data sets.

June 10, 2016 by Kate Rems. AR Glasses Turned Me Into An Instant Surgeon. With InnerOptic’s AIM software running on ODG‘s R-7 Smartglasses, the reporter was able to locate and inject a tumor with one try.

February 23, 2016 – UNC was issued a foundational needle navigation patent, "Methods, Systems, and Computer Readable Media for Image Guided Ablation." , filed on July 23, 2010. This groundbreaking patent has been exclusively licensed to InnerOptic Technology.

October, 2015 – Dr. Galen publishes study "Electromagnetic image guidance in gynecology: prospective study of a new laparoscopic imaging and targeting technique for the treatment of symptomatic uterine fibroids." (Biomedical Engineering Online). The Acessa Guidance System displays the real-time relationship of the movements of the handpiece and laparoscopic ultrasound transducer in the pelvic cavity. It is the first and only computer-assisted image guidance system that has been FDA-cleared for commercial use in laparoscopic surgery for uterine fibroid targeting and treatment. The positive user experience is evident in the facilitation of accurate handpiece tip placement during targeting and ablation of uterine fibroids.

March, 2015 – Dr. Martinie, MD, FACS, presented a poster titled"Real-Time 3-Dimensional Imaging using Computer Tomography and Intraoperative Ultrasound in Surgery" at the Southeastern Surgical Conference. The poster describes the aims, methods, results and conclusions of the study performed at the Carolinas Medical Center using InnerOptic Technologies' 3D tracking system and CT-ultrasound fusion visualization.

September 17, 2014 – Carolinas Medical Center and InnerOptic publish a study in the JanuaryInternational Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association Journal, titled "Laparoscopic microwave ablation of human liver tumours using a novel three-dimensional magnetic guidance system."

June 18, 2014 – Dr. Martin, MD, PhD, FACS, performed the first two cases using Constellation™, placing multiple NanoKnife probes in each case. Constellation provided real-time 3-dimensional feedback on the precise location of the probes, helping Dr. Martin more easily and accurately place the probes.

March 11, 2014 – U.S. Patent #8,670,816, titled "Multiple Medical Device Guidance," was issued to InnerOptic Technology. This invention provides image guidance for the placement of one or more medical devices at a target location.

February 19, 2014Pathfinder demonstrates new electromagnetic navigation system resulting from the collaboration with InnerOptic Technology at AHPBA 2014.

November 13, 2013 – A key patent for AIM was issued to InnerOptic by the US Patent Office. Patent #8,585,598, titled "Systems, Methods, Apparatuses, and Computer-Readable Media for Image Guided Surgery," protects some of AIM's visualization features.
