Elektrofysioloog, Dr. Marisevi Chaldoupi, MD PhD, merkte op: “Vandaag realiseerden we ons bij onze ablatie dat we in het verleden beperkt waren, en nu kunnen we zien wat we doen.

Electrophysiologist, Dr. Marisevi Chaldoupi, MD PhD, commented: “Today in our ablation we realized that we were limited in the past, and now we can see what we are doing. While we have just started in iCMR, it is obvious to see the future of this technology and where it will take us and patient treatment.”

Imricor’s Chair and CEO, Steve Wedan, commented: “This is great news and an exciting step forward, as we start to put COVID behind us. We continue to actively plan for the easing of COVID restrictions, including scheduling training and installation at new sites and supporting the recommencement of procedures at existing sites. We also expect to begin signing new labs again soon, growing our installed base.

“Notably, MUMC+ is one of the sites where cardiology and radiology are partnering to utilize an existing MRI suite as an iCMR lab as a way to start performing ablations using Imricor’s products immediately, while future plans are being made for constructing dedicated iCMR lab facilities. They are a model for other sites who want to get started in a similar way.”

Dr Miranda Bijvoet, MD (imaging Cardiologist) and Dr Casper Mihl, MD (Radiologist) together stated: “Today proved that it is feasible to turn a diagnostic MR into an iCMR lab, and the technique has great potential as we were able to evaluate the ablation lesion and validate the treatment in the right position. This is a great collaboration between cardiology and radiology.”

Rob Holtackers, PhD (MR Physicist) added: “Combining the best imaging with the best of electrophysiology practice allows us to provide better patient care. The partnership is making this amazing project work.”
