Convection Enhanced Drug Delivery with real time, intra-operative MRI becoming prevalent imaging and navigation platform

IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MRI Interventions, Inc. (OTCQB:MRIC) today announced that its ClearPoint® Neuro Navigation System will be on display at the Society for Neuro-Oncology (SNO) and the Society for CNS Interstitial Delivery of Therapeutics (SCIDOT) Joint Conference on Therapeutic Delivery to the CNS – November 15th and 16th, 2017, in San Francisco, CA.  Attendees are invited to visit the MRI Interventions exhibit to learn about the use of the ClearPoint Neuro Navigation System for real-time MRI guided imaging and navigation during Convection Enhanced Delivery (CED) to the brain.

MRI Interventions is involved with six pre-clinical and clinical stage biopharmaceutical companies and their investigators to create a conventional platform for direct delivery of novel therapeutics to the brain utilizing the ClearPoint Neuro Navigation System. Investigators using the ClearPoint System and the SmartFlow® Ventricular Cannula to accommodate fragile cells, genes, proteins and small molecule therapeutics for interstitial infusion, will be speaking at this conference.   

“We believe real-time, intra-operative MRI imaging with ClearPoint is becoming the standard for these drug delivery trials,” said Joe Burnett, President and CEO of MRI Interventions, Inc. “Use of the ClearPoint System enables precise targeting, trajectory planning, catheter placement and delivery of compounds to deep targets in the brain with real-time MRI visualization, all of which are critical to the success of these trials. We are pleased to see the use of our products in such a variety of initiatives, and look forward to exploring partnerships to expand into additional trials as well.”
