A MRI-guided needle positioning system was developed to provide a less invasive surgical method for delivering cellular therapeutics to the spinal cord of swine subjects used in ALS studies. The resulting system is capable of delivering 2mm targeting accuracy along with ease of use, the ability to perform multiple injections without repositioning the targeting device, and delivered a physical end product which is disposable to facilitate ease of implementation in further research.
