IMRIS, Deerfield Imaging receives Japanese Certification for intraoperative CT solution

IMRIS iCT provides highest quality imaging without moving patient during surgery

Minneapolis, MN, March 7, 2017 – IMRIS, Deerfield Imaging, the global leader in intraoperative imaging, today announced that the company has obtained regulatory Certificates from the Japanese Registration Certification Body for the IMRIS iCT, the first and only ceiling-mounted intraoperative computed tomography scanner, allowing for sales and marketing of this system in Japan.

“This completes our portfolio of intraoperative imaging modalities to better treat patients in Japan and is another step in our overall global iCT commercialization,” said IMRIS President and CEO Andrew Flanagan. “As procedures become more minimally invasive, the need for better visualization with advanced imaging during procedures and low radiation exposure increases. IMRIS iCT places the highest quality CT imaging inside the OR.”

IMRIS iCT provides personalized dose management together with diagnostic quality imaging during surgical procedures to assist surgeons in critical decision support and procedure guidance. The 64-slice scanner effortlessly moves into and out of the operative room (OR) in about 30 seconds during surgery using ceiling-mounted rails to ease workflow.

Minimizing radiation dose is critical. IMRIS iCT features a suite of software applications such as 3D volume rendering to aid in surgical planning and dose reduction which considers each patient’s unique characteristics to maximize image quality and minimize dose. The system software allows healthcare practitioners to visualize dosage prior to scan and adjust settings based on the specific clinical need with detailed dosage reports produced after each scan.
