Dell Children's Medical Center to install IMRISneuro in expanded neurocenter
Date:6/16/2008

WINNIPEG, June 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - IMRIS (TSX:IM) Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas today announced the purchase of IMRISneuro, the world's most advanced neurosurgical imaging solution, as part of the expansion of its neuroscience center. A world class leader in complex pediatric care, Dell Children's serves a 46-county region and strives to give families the option of expert neurosurgical care closer to home.

"We are absolutely committed to becoming a world class Center of Excellence for pediatric neurosciences in Texas," commented Dr. Tim George, Chief of Service Pediatric Neurosurgery. "The addition of leading edge technology such as IMRISneuro goes a long way to helping us meet that goal."

IMRISneuro is a fully integrated operating room including the IMRIS one-of-a-kind, movable high field MRI. Dell Children's Medical Center will be one of only 18 hospitals in the world to house IMRISneuro and the first in Texas to install the rotating, ceiling mounted MRI. The new technology allows surgeons to safely image patients in the operating room during brain surgery, helping to rule out complications before the patient leaves the OR.

David Graves, President and CEO of IMRIS said, "In the hands of the neurosurgical team at Dell, we believe our technology will contribute to positive surgical outcomes for children suffering brain related tumors and disease. It is a testament to our product, IMRISneuro, to be the chosen iMRI technology of one of the leading pediatric centers in the US."

No other system offers the same degree of safety and precision for the surgical team and the patient. IMRISneuro does not require the patient to be transported for scanning during the procedure, so optimal patient positioning for the procedure is never compromised. Clinical workflow and surgical access to the patient is not negatively affected since the magnet is completely removed from the operating room when scanning is complete. '/>"/>
