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.
