IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 7, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MRI Interventions, Inc. (OTCQB:MRIC) today announced that its ClearPoint Neuro Navigation System will be on exhibit at the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS)/Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) Section on Pediatric Surgery, taking place on December 8 through 11, 2015, in Seattle, Washington. All AANS/CNS attendees are invited to visit the MRI Interventions booth (#113) to learn about the ClearPoint system's real-time MRI guidance capability that enables surgeons to perform a wide range of minimally-invasive neurosurgical procedures.

"Use of our ClearPoint System in pediatric cases is increasing due, we believe, to several factors including its accuracy in applications unique to pediatric cases," stated Frank Grillo, Chief Executive Officer for MRI Interventions.  "As a result, we believe that the ClearPoint System offers a persuasive option for pediatric patients, their doctors and their families."
