The FDA has given clearance to IMRIS for its ceiling mounted intraoperative CT system, the VISIUS iCT. This is the world’s first and only such system that rides on a ceiling mounted track and is able to be deployed around the patient when necessary within thirty seconds. Because the system does not touch the ground, there’s a lot fewer things to keep in mind and move around when deploying the scanner, while allowing the operation to resume quickly once the scan is done.
The tomograph is a 64 slice scanner that can be shared by adjoining operating rooms, sliding between the two and nearly doubling the efficiency of its utilization compared to a single room intraoperative CT.
