The ClearPoint System Delivers Precision You Can See

IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MRI Interventions, Inc. (OTCQB:MRIC) today announced that its ClearPoint® Neuro Navigation System will be featured as the One Room-One Procedure laser fiber placement technique at the Practical Clinic entitled “Laser Ablation Surgery: Opportunities, Indications, Technique and Outcomes” during the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) taking place on October 7 - 11, 2017, in Boston, Massachusetts. Surgeons will be able to evaluate workflows for patient safety and comfort including frameless, minimally invasive techniques for laser ablation performed entirely in the MRI suite. 

“We continue to see strong adoption of the ClearPoint Neuro Navigation System among leading functional neurosurgical centers across the country.  Due to the precision and accuracy provided by real-time MRI guidance and visualization this is a persuasive option for surgeons and their patients," stated Frank Grillo, Chief Executive Officer for MRI Interventions.  “The ClearPoint System allows surgeons to plan, target, and adjust for multiple trajectories resulting in highly accurate laser ablation of amorphic target lesions. In addition, patients under general anesthesia do not have to endure the placement of a large stereotactic headframe for placement of the laser fiber, which improves patient comfort.” 

Following the Practical Clinic, CNS attendees are invited to visit the MRI Interventions booth (#904) 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.
