October 24, 2018 — IMRIS, Deerfield Imaging, in partnership with Siemens Healthineers, announced a strengthened collaboration to advance both companies in the growing multimodality hybrid operating room (OR) neurosurgical market. IMRIS will support the sales of both the IMRIS ceiling-mounted and Siemens Healthineers fixed options for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) and angiography imaging modalities.
IMRIS offers what it calls the world's only moving ceiling-mounted intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging (iMRI) or computed tomography (iCT) imaging modality. These allow neurosurgeons to see critical anatomical detail while the patient is on the operating table. IMRIS' moving iMRI solution provides surgeons the capability to bring advanced imaging technology to the patient, rather than moving the patient in and out of the operating room. This technology provides neurosurgeons greater precision and accuracy during surgery, reducing the need for additional operations and reducing the possibility of complications associated with moving the patient.
