MRI Interventions said its ClearPoint Neuro navigation system has been used in 3,000 neurosurgical procedures.
The milestone procedure was completed at the University of California, San Francisco, USA, according to the vendor.
“This milestone is a testament to the value surgeons are placing on precision guided therapy, especially in neurosurgery where the stakes are the highest,” comments Joe Burnett, president and CEO of MRI Interventions. “Although the timing is coincidental, we were thrilled to share this success with the team at the University of California, San Francisco, who have partnered with us for the last decade in refining our platform and ensuring the voice of not only the doctor, but also that of the patient, is included in every improvement. It is also important to note that not only did UCSF perform the 3,000th case using ClearPoint, they also performed the 3,001st case that same day. UCSF is among the now ten centres scheduling two cases per day utilising the same MRI scanner, which has been a strategic push for us in the past year.”
