FDA Clears IMRIS Visius Surgical Theatre Upgrade

IMRIS Visius Surgical Theatre MRI Systems Angiography Hybrid OR

February 28, 2014 — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared IMRIS Inc.’s upgraded Visius Surgical Theatre, which integrates Siemens' high-field MR scanners.

The core imaging technology based on Siemens Aera 1.5T(tesla) and Skyra 3.0T technology helps IMRIS deliver better image quality with higher signal-to-noise ratio. It also provides faster 3-D image acquisition and improved ease-of-use and workflow during neurosurgical procedures using intraoperative MRI (iMRI).

The addition of these MR systems expands the 1.5T and 3.0T MRI choices hospitals have when considering the ceiling-mounted IMRIS solution for intraoperative imaging, which brings the MRI to the patient during the procedure.

The first installation of this new generation Visius Surgical Theatre will be a four-room hybrid operating room suite, known as the Center for Surgical Innovation (CSI) at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, N.H. 

The Dartmouth-Hitchcock installation will also include a Visius intraoperative CT (iCT), which utilizes the technology of the 64-slice Siemens Somatom Definition AS scanner, making it an operating suite with both Visius iMRI and iCT modalities able to serve multiple operating rooms without moving the patient.

Inside a Visius Surgical Theatre equipped with either high-field iMRI or iCT, surgeons have on-demand access to real-time data and imaging during the procedure from the OR table.

Example images for a control participant , a deletion carrier, and a duplication carrier. In the sagittal image of the deletion carrier, the thick corpus callosum, dens and craniocervical abnormality, and cerebellar ectopia are shown. For the duplication carrier, the sagittal image shows the thin corpus callosum and the axial image shows the increased ventricle size and decreased white matter volume.
