For these reasons, we continue to see strong adoption of the ClearPoint System among leading children’s hospitals,” stated Wendelin Maners, Vice President of Marketing for MRI Interventions. “These centers are utilizing the ClearPoint System for treating fragile patients with dystonia, epilepsy or brain tumors. We are proud to work with innovative pediatric neurosurgeons and children’s hospitals to offer asleep, frameless, minimally invasive surgical options for their young patients, and we look forward to being part of their annual meeting.”
AANS/CNS Section attendees are invited to visit the MRI Interventions booth (#300) to learn about the ClearPoint Neuro Navigation System. ClearPoint goes beyond planning, enabling surgeons to perform a wide range of minimally-invasive neurosurgical procedures under real-time MRI visualization.
