Date:9/19/2012

ClearPoint targeting device, and watches via magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as the surgical tool is advanced to the target. 

"The cases went well and we are very pleased to have performed the first ClearPoint procedures in Europe," said Prof. Chabardes.  "The move to real-time, MRI-guidance for minimally invasive neurosurgical procedures is inevitable and the ClearPoint system is now bringing these capabilities to the clinic."

"We are very pleased to formally launch our European ClearPoint commercialization effort with initial cases in Grenoble, a significant site to neurosurgeons and their patients around the world for its role in pioneering DBS therapy," said Kimble Jenkins, CEO of MRI Interventions.  "This activity in Europe builds on the growth we are seeing in the United States, where ClearPoint systems have already been installed in 16 sites."
