Introducing

A handheld 2.2mm arthroscope, consisting of a needle with an integrated camera and a light source designed for in-office use.

Next-level diagnostics

Now, physicians can provide realtime analysis, effect faster treatment, and schedule patients for surgery immediately – resulting in quicker outcomes for patients and a more efficient process for doctors.

The future of visualization is here

Joint injuries can take weeks to visualize and diagnose with an MRI. mi-eye 2™ is faster, providing surgeons with instant answers – in the comfort of your office.

A powerful perspective

A wide, 120° viewing angle empowers doctors with the expanded perspective they need to visualize and confirm joint injuries.

The ultimate tool for surgeons

Microsoft and Trice Medical are proud to present the Trice Tablet. Its large, HD screen displays direct visualization from mi-eye 2™ with striking precision. The performance of the Trice tablet puts the indirect visualization of an MRI to shame.

Who are the ideal mi-eye 2™ patients?

mi-eye 2™ is ideal for patients that are not candidates for an MRI such as those with claustrophobia, pacemakers, metal implants, obesity or anxiety. In addition, mi-eye 2™ is ideal for patients that want an immediate answer to what is causing their pain.

+

Do patients have any issues tolerating a 2.2mm-gauge needle?

Patients have tolerated the procedure very well, with most reporting little to no pain. It is important to note that every patient is different, and pain may be variable. We recommend an injection of local anesthetic prior to the mi-eye 2™ procedure to help eliminate any unneccesary pain or discomfort.

Reimbursements

Will there be a reduction in reimbursement if I take a patient to surgery after mi-eye 2™?

If pathology that requires surgical intervention is discovered using mi-eye 2™, your billing office can add the -58 modifier to the diagnostic code. This modifier will allow for reimbursement of all activities that occur during the 90-Day Global Period.

+

Do I need to get a pre-authorization before performing a mi-eye 2™ procedure?

Prior-authorization is not a guarantee of payment. However, validated mi-eye 2™ procedural history has indicated that prior authorization is patient and plan dependent.
