Imris, a provider of image guided therapy solutions, has received Health Canada approval for its AccuTrack, a 3D image guidance tool for use in IMRIS neurosurgery suites.
MRIS suites are designed to provide timely imaging information to assist clinicians in making better decisions during procedures for improved patient outcomes.
AccuTrack, by using an lightweight probe, facilitates surgeons to locate target anatomy before and during a neurosurgical procedure.
The localization is done by automatic registration of patient anatomy to intraoperative MR images.
The IMRIS system allows a MR scanner to move into an operating room during and after procedures without moving the patient.
The MR scanner is removed from the operating room when imaging is complete thus maintaining the clinical workflow and access to the patient.
