Founded in 2005, IMRIS is a global provider of intraoperative imaging solutions.
The Hybrid IMRIS Surgical Theatre
Marketed by IMRIS as “The World’s Most Advanced Hybrid Surgical Theatre,” The IMRIS Surgical Theatre combines technology created by IMRIS, such as the moveable intraoperative MRI, with technology from leading medical device partner companies.
The moveable iMRI and iCT
Incorporated into The IMRIS Surgical Theatre, the IMRIS intraoperative MRI and CT (or “iMRI" and “iCT”) products are mounted on a unique ceiling rail system that brings the image modality (scanner) to the patient, rather than having to transport or reposition the patient for intraoperative imaging. The moveable iMRI and iCT products are available in multiple-room configurations, so imaging can be utilized in other rooms for intraoperative or diagnostic scanning.
The new MRI-conditional surgical table
Designed by Trumpf Medical exclusively for The IMRIS Surgical Theatre, the MRI-conditional surgical table features interchangeable tabletops. Its flexible design allows surgical teams to position patients at the optimal angle for surgical and imaging access. Teams can control the table via remote or the column control panel.
IMRIS provides a “full-service solution,” an all-inclusive service package that covers everything from the initial design of hybrid Surgical Theatres to ongoing maintenance. In the company’s sales materials, the “full-service solution” is divided into four categories: consult, design, create and support.
Consulting Services: IMRIS consultants work with hospitals and leading technology providers to determine a hybrid OR solution that brings maximum return-on-investment to the hospital and produces the best possible outcomes for patients.
Design Services: IMRIS architects & designers work with hospitals and clinical teams to custom-design the configuration of The IMRIS Surgical Theatre. This is based on factors ranging from the surgeon’s unique workflow to the hospital’s departmental layout, which determines patient-flow.
“Create” (engineering) Services: IMRIS’ team of engineers and technicians provide full project-management throughout the construction of the Theatre. Meanwhile, IMRIS representatives coordinate with hospital staff and administration to minimize functional interruption throughout construction.
Support Services: After the creation of The IMRIS Surgical Theatre, IMRIS often engages in a service contract with partner organizations. With a fully integrated OR and MR team, IMRIS provides services ranging from continued maintenance to intraoperative technical support.
In 2005, IMRIS evolved from research related to intraoperative imaging conducted through Canada’s National Research Council.
