Imricor Medical Systems Announces Sales Collaboration with Optoacoustics

Imricor Medical Systems has announced a sales collaboration with Optoacoustics Ltd, the world leader in innovative, high-performance optical communication solutions for magnetic resonance (MR) applications.

The collaboration establishes a formal relationship between Imricor Medical Systems and Optoacoustics to facilitate the introduction of the IMROC IRTM Wireless Multichannel Communication System to Imricor customers. IMROC provides wireless noise-canceling MRI headsets that can be used by up to 8 participants simultaneously, including the patient. The system was developed specifically for use in iCMR environments.

Given the noise and complexities of MRI, normal conversation can be difficult during iCMR procedures. The IMROC IR System is the first multi-channel wireless audio system in the world to operate without RF. The system uses light waves for transmission with no impact on MRI imaging, enabling calm, clear dialog between doctors and technicians.

“Optoacoustics is a well-known company in the communication space. The technology is very innovative and supports our overall strategy of bringing cardiac interventions into the iCMR,” said Nick Twohy, Imricor’s Director of Marketing.

Imricor products are specifically designed to work under real-time MRI guidance, with the intent of enabling higher success rates along with a faster and safer treatment compared to conventional procedures using x-ray guided catheters. Imricor is the first and only company to offer cardiac ablation devices for use in the MRI environment.

Dr. Yuvi Kahana, CEO and Co-Founder of Optoacoustics, stated, “We’re thrilled and excited – it’s hard to imagine a better fit for IMROC. Imricor’s advances in cardiac catheter ablation highlight the productive benefits of simple, comfortable communications among iCMR staff, and IMROC provides the most effective and robust noise cancelling solution available.”
