VISIUS iCT is latest leading edge technology for intraoperative imaging solutions

MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - IMRIS Inc. (NASDAQ: IMRS; TSX: IM) ("IMRIS" or the "Company") announced that the company has received the 2013 Innovation in Medical Devices Award from Minnesota Business Magazine in recognition for significantly improving medical technology with the launch of its VISIUS® iCT. The awards were announced Oct. 29 during a dinner ceremony at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis.

"As the global leader in intraoperative image-guided solutions, we anticipate that VISIUS iCT will be an invaluable tool for spine and neurosurgery and trauma, just as our VISIUS iMRI is now for cranial and skull-base neurosurgery," said Jay D. Miller, IMRIS President and CEO. "IMRIS is delighted for this recognition after recently joining the Twin Cities business community which is at the heart of world-class medical device innovation." IMRIS relocated its operations to Minnetonka from Winnipeg in early 2013.

VISIUS iCT, the newest IMRIS product approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in July, improves spinal and orthopaedic surgery by bringing state-of-the-art computed tomography (CT) imaging to the patient during procedures by mounting the scanner on ceiling rails that transport the scanner to the patient. Surgical precision and patient outcomes are improved when the surgeon has access to this high-quality imaging during the procedure. Other types of intraoperative X-ray based imaging on the market occupy valuable OR floor space and do not match the image resolution and applications available with VISIUS iCT.

Developed for the neurosurgery and spine surgery markets, VISIUS iCT also features advanced software applications that maximize image quality while minimizing radiation exposure in real time and industry leading post-processing software to enhance surgical diagnosis and intervention.

The Minnesota Business Magazine 2013 Leaders in Health Care Awards recognize individuals and organizations leading the charge in Minnesota's world-class healthcare industry. The awardshonor excellent patient care, outstanding leadership, and thoughtful innovation.

About IMRIS
IMRIS (NASDAQ: IMRS; TSX: IM) is a global leader in providing image guided therapy solutions through its VISIUS Surgical Theatre - a revolutionary, multifunctional surgical environment that provides unmatched intraoperative vision to clinicians to assist in decision making and enhance precision in treatment. The multi-room suites incorporate diagnostic quality high-field MR, CT and angio modalities accessed effortlessly in the operating room setting.
