Inside a VISIUS Surgical Theatre equipped with either high-field iMRI or 64-slice intraoperative Computed Tomography (iCT), surgeons have on-demand access to real-time data and state-of-the-art imaging, during the procedure from the operating room (OR) table. IMRIS is the only company that offers an MRI and CT imaging solution where the scanner moves on ceiling-mounted rails to enter or exit the OR which mitigates known risks of moving critically-ill patients.Unlike other systems, no heavy imaging equipment needs to be wheeled into the room nor does the patient need to be moved to an adjacent imaging room from the OR. The surgeon can visualize, evaluate and confirm results while modifying treatment without case interruption. Developed for neurosurgery and spinal surgery, the systems are also intended to provide physicians with state-of-the-art image quality with access to a full range of software applications.
