Medical Device Accelerators: Southwestern Style

Device start-ups are legion in some geographies-the areas around Boston and San Francisco or Orange County, CA-and not in some others. For instance, there's been very little company creation in the Southwestern parts of the US. A new device incubator, Avant Ventures LLC, will try to redress that problem in the four-state area that includes Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah.

Following routine screening mammography, 1.4 million women in the US each year have breast biopsies once a radiologist identifies a suspicious lesion. However, only 20% of women undergoing biopsies will be found to have cancer and not just abnormal, but benign growths. Several new companies have gone to the drawing board to remedy the shortcomings of biopsy devices.
