PICS meeting 2022 in Chicago, live case in low field scanner

Siemens low field (0.55 Tesla) Free.Max scanner

The new Siemens low field (0.55 Tesla) Free.Max scanner provides a tool that is expected to drive interventional MRI into a next level. On September 9th during the PICS meeting in Chicago, dr Aimee Armstrong from Nationwide Children’s, will conduct a stenting procedure using the Free.Max in Ohio State University, led by the team of Orlando Simonetti.

Dr Armstrong will do a stenting procedure using Nano4Imaging’s EmeryGlide guidewire and Numed Z-Med balloons marked with MagnaFy MRI markers. Preliminary studies have shown the excellent visibility of markers on guidewire and balloon catheter to allow safe stenting.
