TopSpin Medical installs Cathamaran IVMRI System in Belgian hospital

TopSpin Medical Israel : 31 January, 2008  (New Product)
TopSpin Medical has completed the first commercial installation of the Cathamaran Intravascular MRI System at ZOL Hospital, Genk, Belgium.
The first procedures were performed on January 16 2008.

'We are pleased to be the first site to install the Cathamaran IVMRI System. This 6F compatible technology represents a major breakthrough in our ability to detect and quantify lipid present in coronary lesions. We are very excited to be among the first centres to participate in the Miracle Study to further evaluate the clinical role for IVMRI in both diagnostic and interventional coronary catheterisation procedures. The identification of high risk, lipid -rich lesions that may be prone to rupture is of paramount importance, and the IVMRI System may potentially help address this unmet need,' stated Dr M Vrolix from ZOL hospital, Belgium.

The company and the distributor are currently in advance negotiation for similar agreements with additional medical centres in the Benelux territory. The company is expecting to install additional Cathamaran Intravascular MRI systems in the Benelux territory in the course of the current quarter.

The Cathamaran IVMRI System will be used in a post-market study of coronary plaque lipid characterization by IVMRI performed during diagnostic or interventional catheterisation (Miracle Study). The multi-national prospective Miracle Study is designed to collect data on a widespread post-market clinical experience to evaluate how lipid quantification with the IVMRI System may be used to guide patient treatment.

Yaron Tal, president and chief executive officer of TopSpin Medical, said: 'The introduction of our unique Cathamaran Intravascular MRI System and the initiation of the Miracle Registry represent major milestones for our company. We are committed to advancing investigation into vulnerable plaque with the goal of improving diagnosis of these high-risk lesions and aiding development of appropriate therapeutic solutions. We are very excited to collaborate with ZOL hospital in this important investigation.'
