MRI Interventions announced that its ClearPoint Neuro Navigation System will be exhibited at the 45th Annual Meeting of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS)/Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) Section on Pediatric Neurological Surgery, taking place 5 to 8 December 2016, in Orlando, Florida.
"In pediatric brain surgery, precision, real-time, image guided navigation and device placement are especially important. Pediatric patients and their families benefit from the reduced discomfort and improved patient experience when the ClearPoint System is utilized for navigation.
“For these reasons, we continue to see strong adoption of the ClearPoint System among leading children's hospitals," stated Wendelin Maners, Vice President of Marketing for MRI Interventions.
"These centers are utilizing the ClearPoint System for treating fragile patients with dystonia, epilepsy, or brain tumors. We are proud to work with innovative pediatric neurosurgeons and children's hospitals to offer asleep, frameless, minimally invasive surgical options for their young patients, and we look forward to being part of their annual meeting."
AANS/CNS Section attendees are invited to visit the MRI Interventions booth (#300) to learn about the ClearPoint Neuro Navigation System. ClearPoint goes beyond planning, enabling surgeons to perform a wide range of minimally-invasive neurosurgical procedures under real-time MRI visualization.
Building on the imaging power of MRI, MRI Interventions is creating innovative platforms for performing the next generation of minimally invasive surgical procedures in the brain.
The ClearPoint System, which has received 510(k) clearance and is CE marked, utilizes a hospital's existing diagnostic or intraoperative MRI suite to enable a range of minimally invasive procedures in the brain.
