May 1, 2009 - IMRIS Inc. received CE Mark approval for its integrated MR imaging and X-Ray angiography suite that enables physicians to diagnose, intervene, resolve and confirm the effectiveness of treatment with one integrated system.
With CE Mark approval, IMRIS will immediately commence marketing in Europe of two products: IMRISNV for stroke management and advanced neurovascular interventions and IMRIScardio for cardiovascular interventions.
IMRISNV features a 3T MRI scanner and a bi-plane angiography system specifically designed to co-exist in the same suite. Patients with acute ischemic stroke transition seamlessly from MR imaging to intervention without moving from the table. During and after the intervention, new MR images can be taken to assess the effectiveness of the treatment. IMRISNV is designed to shorten transition time between imaging modalities, decrease the overall time for treatment and improve patient outcomes.
IMRIScardio features a 1.5T MRI scanner that provides images that can improve the physician's ability to visualize the cardiovascular system before, during and after an intervention. With an integrated single-plane angiography system, IMRIScardio is designed to improve patient outcomes by decreasing the overall time for cardiovascular interventions and minimizing the patient's exposure to radiation and contrast media.
