The NIH-sponsored international Phase III MISTIE Trial showed that that patients whose residual clot volume was reduced below 15 ml exhibited a statistically higher degree of functional independence. However, CT-image guidance has trouble visualizing clot, brain tissue, and intermediate levels of evacuation. MRI-guidance of ICH evacuations would support far better visualization of clots during attempts at suction or administration of lysing drugs. We present a six panel display whose viewpoints are patterned directly from the Medtronic Stealth workstation. This interface allows for acquisition and display of MR-images in real-time. Viewing planes and image parameters can be changed in real-time.
