Emerging focal therapies such as laser ablation and neuro-navigation combined with intraoperative MRI in the VISIUS Surgical Theatre allow for expanding minimally invasive techniques and accurate placement of tools for improved outcomes. IMRIS products provide surgeons on-demand access to real-time, state-of-the-art imaging during procedures in the operating room (OR) without moving the patient. VISIUS Surgical Theatres by IMRIS are equipped with either high-field MR or 64-slice computed tomography (CT) that move to the patient on ceiling-mounted rails.
"We continue to develop and put into the hands of neurosurgeons cutting edge visualization which support these growing less invasive treatment options for improving patient outcomes," said Jay D. Miller, IMRIS President and CEO. "In some of these cases, these innovations are offering patients new hope for conditions once considered inoperable. The VISIUS Surgical Theatre is an ideal platform for neurosurgeons by enabling therapies in the OR with enhanced surgical planning and assessment without moving the patient."
IMRIS also designs and manufactures proprietary head fixation devices, horseshoe headrests, imaging coils, and OR tables for use in this unique and multifunctional intraoperative environment.
