Attendees are invited to visit the MRI Interventions exhibit to learn about the use of the ClearPoint Neuro Navigation System for monitoring convection enhanced drug delivery (CED).
"The ClearPoint Neuro Navigation System provides MRI guidance and placement of catheters for drug infusion into the brain allowing clinicians to directly monitor distribution of therapeutics under real-time, MRI visualization. Any reflux along the CED catheter or leakage outside the target area, can be visualized and corrective steps taken and confirmed almost immediately." said, Krystof Bankiewicz, M.D., Ph.D., Professor of Neurosurgery and Neurology, Kinetics Foundation Chair in Translational Research, University of California San Francisco.
The ClearPoint neuro navigation system allows surgeons to plan, target, and adjust trajectories under real time MRI-guided visualization for placement of electrodes, catheters and biopsy needles.
