IMRIS' iMRI shows positive tumor removal results in retrospective study IMRIS announced that a published retrospective study indicates that use of VISIUS intraoperative MRI combined with endoscopy for transsphenoidal surgery increases the amount of pituitary tumor removal compared to conventional microscopy without iMRI. The amount of tumor removal using iMRI was also associated with longer patient survival, according to the article. The retrospective study showed that iMR revealed that tumor removal was incomplete for 56 out of 156 patients, 35.9%.

IMRIS announces publication of iMRI data IMRIS announced that a recently published article in the journal Neurosurgery is the highest level clinical evidence to show that the use of VISIUS intraoperative iMRI in brain tumor surgery results in complete tumor removal in more patients with glioma tumors. The company said, "Clearly these studies continue to show the benefit of having the level of MR imaging the IMRIS solution provides inside the operating room without moving the patient. We know certain surgeons won't do these types of procedures without being in our surgical suites. In time, use of VISIUS iMRI will develop into a standard of care in these cases."
