Strokes are one of the most common causes of death, and there is little in terms of treatment. One of the most deadly type of strokes are spontaneous intra-cerebral hemorrhages (ICH), which has a fatality rate of about 50%.
Fortunately two powerhouses are making a plan to combat these strokes. The Mayo Clinic and MRI Interventions Inc. are collaborating to develop MRI therapies to treat ICH, using the ClearPoint Neuro Navigation System, which allows for real time MRI images of patient’s brain during surgery. In other words, this system allows for surgeons to perform fine-tuned and minimally invasive procedures for stroke patients.
While there is still more research needed, it seems a new line of work MRI machines will be with assisted surgery.
At Sound Imaging, we are excited to see how the utility of MRI scans are expanding to treatment options as well. We understand and appreciate the versatility of MRI machines, which is why we aim to provide everything and anything for MRIs.
