SyngoNeuro PBV IR Monitors Intracranial Parenchymal Blood Flows

Siemens reports about new functional imaging for interventional neuroradiology - syngo Neuro PBV IR.

Syngo Neuro PBV IR (Parenchymal Blood Volume, Interventional Suite) is a new application for interventional radiology that allows you to review parenchymal blood flow during minimally invasive interventions in the brain for the first time.

This feature assists the neuroradiologist in the treatment of stroke patients by displaying the condition of the cerebral tissue directly in the angio suite.

marled_.jpgNew generation of operating lights

A Press Release from KLS Martin Group describes their operating lights - marLED® V16 and V10, have been successfully validated in conjunction with the integrated OR1 operating room systems manufactured by Karl Storz GmbH & Co. KG. The “Universal OR” interface of the SCB module from Karl Storz enables users to control up to 4 marLED® light heads conveniently by touch screen.

The following light functions can be controlled: ON/OFF, light field diameter, color temperature, and dimming. The surgiCam® SD and HD camera systems have also been validated for operation with the OR1 system. With its latest release, the OR1 system is capable of generating a complete image of the camera operating functions.

IMRISMRI Fluoroscopy Systems for Intraprocedural Multimodal Imaging

In a Press Release IMRIS Inc announces the FDA clearance of IMRISnv, a system with both MRI and x-ray angiography in a single suite.

The IMRISNV features a 3T MRI scanner and a bi-plane angiography system completely integrated into a single suite that permits the patient to transition quickly and seamlessly between MR imaging and intervention without transporting the patient. Using IMRISNV, MR images can be taken before and during procedures to assess tissue health, and can also be used in conjunction with the fluoroscopic images during the interventional procedure.

NexstimAssessment of the primary motor cortex

Nexstim (Helsinki, Finland) reports that FDA has given approval for their Navigated Brain Stimulation System for the assessment of the primary motor cortex for pre-procedural planning.

Using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) guided by standard MR-image data, Nexstim's Navigated Brian Stimulation (NBS) offers a non-invasive direct technique for functional mapping of the motor cortex. In its FDA submission, Nexstim included data comparing the accuracy of NBS pre-operative mapping with the results of "gold standard" direct cortical stimulation during actual brain tumor surgery.
