Support for a project, in partnership with Mayo Clinic Arizona, to develop a new generation of endoscopic tattoo inks that demonstrate precise spot sizes, minimal inflammation, high retention and low loss from target tissue (e.g. colon), and possess the capability of visualization by multiple clinical imaging technologies, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
