Cardiac real-time MRI again showcase: now at ISMRM

After the live case in Washington at SCMR2017, now also ISMRM which gathers more then 5000 specialists in MRI, had a live broadcast of real time cardiac MRI in a plenary session on April 25th. Among several speakers it was prof. Razavi who explained the value of interventional MRI in cardiac diagnostics and interventions. His research group at King’s College London has been the first to apply real-time MRI to congenital heart disease more than 15 years ago.

TED talk with Nano4Imaging technology explained

On February 13th 2017, Paul Borm (Founder and CSO of Nano4Imaging) gave a TED talk in which he talks about innovation as results of energy explosions. During his talk he brings nanotechnology forward as a discipline that needs cross-border collaboration to understand the use and applications of new (nano)materials. To explain this he shows a movie a MRI guided stenting in a pig renal artery during his talk. He also stresses the importance of open innovation.

Landmark live case at SCMR 2017

Today (February 3rd 2017) at SCMR in Washington DC, a live case of MRI guided intervention was shown for a full audience of MRI experts, for the first time watching such an event in an MRI meeting. While being quite common in cardiology, the session is a landmark for MRI guided cardiology procedures and an event to remember. Thanks to Robert Lederman (NIH) for organizing and moderating this event. Later on the same day Christian Meierhofer (DHZ Munich) presented data on the 25 patients done in Munich in out PMCF.

Data PMCF presented at iMRI in Baltimore

Between October 6th and 8th the 7th interventional MRI symposium took place in Baltimore (USA), hosted by Johns Hopkins Medical School. Dr Christian Meierhofer (German Heart institute, Munich, Germany) presented the data of the first 17 patients included in the PMCF. Also prof Gutberlet (Leipzig, Helios Heart centre) referred to our ongoing study. Pressure measurements were done in different regions in the heart. All procedures were done in MRI without the use of a cathlab. In all procedures Wedge catheters were used, and with the help and visibility of the MRWire guide wire manipulated to right ventricle, aortic arch, pulmonary artery or right atrium. The full abstract can be downloaded here Abstract-Meierhofer-Baltimore. .

CMR and AEPC meetings in Florence and Rome

IMG_0273

Both at EuroCMR in Florence (May 13th) and on June 2nd in Rome (Italy) at the European pediatric cardiology society (AEPC) there were memorial symposia to remember the efforts and inspiration of dr Sohrab Fratz in the field of congenital heart diseases. Dr Fratz shared and co-developed Nano4Imaging’s vision that cathlab procedures can be transferred to the MRI suite, in an effort to improve quality of the procedure at the same reducing radiation for both patient and doctor. The first data on measuring invasive blood pressure using of the MRWire in patients were presented at the  AEPC symposium by Kristina Belker from the German Heart Institute Munich.

At the same symposium dr Aphrodite Tzifa (First in man congenital heart disease MRI guided intervention, Circulation, 2010) praised the efforts of Nano4Imaging to bring a guidewire to the market.

Forum discussion at Biomedica

On the 30th of May 2016 the Biomedica summit in Aachen was attended by about 1000 participants  in life sciences and medical technology. Nano4Imaging’s CSO Paul Borm moderated a special session  on Regulatory affairs for ATMPs. The discussion panel included Rob Nugungu (Akron), Jan Schrooten (Antleron), Frank Luyten KU Leuven) and Jurgen Scherer (Paul Ehrlich Inst). The discussion was well attended by a mix of participants from industry and academia. The take home message was that in the field of this new products there is a close interactions between manufacturers and notified bodies and that the “learning curve” for both parties is steep.
