IMRIS provides fully integrated image guided therapy solutions that deliver timely information to clinicians for use during surgical or interventional procedures. Our solutions incorporate magnetic resonance imaging and fluoroscopy into multi purpose surgical suites for specific medical applications. Our products are sold globally to hospitals that deliver clinical services to patients in the neurosurgical, interventional neurovascular and cardiovascular markets.
Patients: The patient does not need to be moved for imaging during the course of a surgical or interventional procedure with IMRIS systems. This saves time and avoids potential safety risks associated with moving the patient.
Clinicians: IMRIS systems are designed to enhance the workflow of the clinical team. High resolution imaging information is available rapidly and presented in a manner designed to enhance clinician efficiency and effectiveness. In addition, since the patient is not moved for imaging, the patient can be maintained in the optimal position and clinicians are afforded unrestricted access to the patient.
Hospitals: The IMRIS suite design permits greater utilization of the MR equipment by allowing the MR scanner to be shared by one or more clinical suites and an adjacent diagnostic room.
Our mission is to provide image guided therapy solutions that enhance the quality of clinical procedures and improve outcomes for patients. Through our ongoing investment in research and development we are committed to broadening our product portfolio with solutions to address additional medical applications.
