Stratford, CT, November 5, 2019 – The Connecticut Technology Council (CTC) and Marcum LLP announced KUBTEC has made the Marcum Tech Top 40 (TT40) list of fastest growing technology companies in Connecticut.
Kubtec develops and manufactures innovative tools in digital X-ray equipment for specimen radiography, scientific research, forensic analysis, non-destructive testing, irradiation, and more. “Kubtec is honored to be named one of the Tech Top 40 Finalists, it really confirms we are on the right track and making great stride in helping breast cancer surgeons perform more precise surgeries”, said Kubtec founder and Chief Executive Officer Vikram Butani.
Kubtec’s Mozart® system, the first portable intra-operative breast specimen tomosynthesis system, allows surgeons to take clear 3D images of tumor specimens in the operating room within seconds. It also enables visualization even through obstructions like dense tissue or skin while surgeons are performing lumpectomy procedures. While a lumpectomy has been demonstrated to be as effective as a mastectomy, with lower risk of infection and better cosmetic outcome, 20% of these patients will need a second surgery. Some facilities and surgeons have re-excision rates as high as 35%.
“The Mozart has changed the way breast surgeons are performing their surgery in the Operating Room, and we are thrilled to part of this shift in practice,” added Butani.
