Beta Pi Brothers - Rock the Bald for St. Baldrick's
Philanthropy We believe it is our duty to give back to the broader Georgia Tech and Atlanta Community and our chapter is consistently one of the top philanthropic chapters on campus and among all TKE chapters, directly raising over $100,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, over $50,000 for childhood cancer research working with St Baldrick’s volunteer and donor supported charity and have helped donate thousands of meals to front line workers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Any graduating Teke will tell you that philanthropy was one of their most rewarding and enjoyable college experiences.

Kolovich and Ruff’s OXOS Medical wins victory in army innovation competition with their Micro C device

Micro C Device in Use

Alumni Greg Kolovich, MD and Evan Ruff reach another milestone of success as they launch their extremely interesting medical device startup, OXOS Medical.  They have won first-round funding for their Micro C handheld X-ray device in the U.S. Army xTechSearch competition

From the Micro C Imaging website (https://www.microcimaging.com/): “Existing medical imaging devices are too large, complex, and risk-prone for today’s medical professionals to be successful. The doctor’s office of today and tomorrow is designed for efficient and effective treatment of more patients than before. Micro C revolutionizes the field with a hand-held, x-ray and digital imaging device no larger or heavier than a digital camera.

Where a typical mini C-arm device is similar in size to a hospital bed or wheel chair and can barely fit through doorways, the Micro C system can be carried from room to room with ease. With an ergonomically-designed hand-held fluoroscopy device and separate, book-sized image receptor, Micro C offers a level of flexibility to healthcare providers never before seen.

A team of professionals and medical experts has designed Micro C to revolutionize the industry. Years of experience with medical imagery and surgical procedures has culminated in the development of this innovative new mobile-first technology.
