This talk will present the Gönemeyer Institute of Microtherapy experience in MRI
guided intervention. We will discuss feasibility, clinical experience and future
directions. MRI interventions are more time consuming that CT-guided interventions
but several techniques are able to speed up the procedure time. The main advantage
of MRI is the absence of irradiation and improved visualization over CT (lesion, soft
tissue). Therapeutic interventions may include, interventional spine treatment like
isthmic spondylolisthesis or facet join therapy and articulations. During arthrography,
liquid can be punctured and drugs can be installed. Other example like MRI guided
cryotherapy or surgical intervention in open MRI will be mentioned.
