Lymph node revealed in high contrast

About Cision 

Breakthrough technology

Cision Vision’s imaging technology was invented by Dr. Angela Belcher, the head of Bioengineering Department at MIT, and Jeremy Li, our CEO in 2020. It is a brand-new type of infrared imaging that exploits the natural composition difference between lymph nodes and fat.

As an optical imaging technique, it is completely real-time and does not involve any radiation or injection, maximizing convenience for busy clinical environments.

Our Product Cision Vision

Improving the efficiency and accuracy of image node grossing 


Key Features

Visualizing the natural chemical composition contrast between lymph nodes and fat.


The shoebox-size design makes it is compatible with even the most space-limited labs;​


A battery-driven design allowing it to be moved in an out of the grossing bench when necessary;

Completely real-time imaging without any scanning time;




Seeing lymph nodes as the opposite color as the surrounding fat; Seeing hemorrhage- stained fat as clear fat;

If needed, lymph node images can be saved to local disks and integrated into pathology reports.


Our Mission


You spoke, We listened.

Throughout the journey of creating this product, we have interviewed more than 400 Pathologists’ Assistants, pathologists, residents, and other clinicians. Our product is made for the PAs and by the PAs. Multiple opinion leaders, including Prof. Mary Mattes from Rosalind Franklin University, Prof. Rob Cottrell from Quinnipiac University, and many others, have been offering tremendous support to us right from the beginning. With the tremendous help and warmth that we received from the community, we are determined to improve the  accuracy and efficiency of cancer care around the world.
