Mitigating the factors that negatively influence MRI thermometry, providing confidence in the accuracy of the ablation zone and added safety assurance.
The NeuroBlate® System is Built to Deliver Accurate Thermography with Enhanced Visualization
During a LITT (Laser Interstitial Thermal Therapy) procedure, the visual representation of the MRI thermometry data is critical to the user’s ability to perform a neurosurgical ablation in a safe and effective manner. The NeuroBlate System is designed to provide deeper penetration of laser energy with a measured and steady rate of heating for a controlled ablation.

Because Precision Matters
Controlled Heating of Targeted Ablation Zone
NeuroBlate Delivers Enhanced 3D Visualization
- The NeuroBlate Fusion Software™ allows for the user to accurately fuse the preoperative Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) data with the day-of-treatment images. This ensures the anatomical accuracy of the combined images during the procedure. During an ablation, the user can view a combination of the fused images and the Thermal Dose Threshold (TDT) lines to control ablations.
- When using MR thermometry to visualize an ablation, it is necessary to optimize voxel size, MR acquisition time and the number of planes presented. Visualizing the ablation in three dimensions and maintaining an 8-second MR acquisition time is valuable information to the user for a targeted ablation.
- The NeuroBlate System was designed with a voxel* size of 2mm x 2mm x 5mm. This representation of the ablation zone allows for appropriate clinical decisions during the procedure while still allowing a three dimensional representation of the ablation and a MR acquisition time of 8 seconds.
- The NeuroBlate Fusion Software™ feature can be utilized to merge post-operative MRI data to intra-operative data to allow for confirmation of thermal estimate using post-operative, post-contrast enhanced imaging.
