“The clinical introduction of Imricor’s MRI-guided cardiac ablation system marks a new era in cardiology,” said Dr. Marco Götte, founder of the interventional cardiac magnetic resonance (iCMR) Field+Lab and cardiologist at Amsterdam UMC. “This groundbreaking technology will fundamentally change the way we think about the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias at Amsterdam UMC. With MRI-guided procedures, electrophysiologists and imaging cardiologists will have the opportunity to work together to develop advanced treatment plans based on a patient’s unique cardiac structure and disease presentation. This has the potential to substantially improve cardiac care for patients with structural heart disease and related cardiac arrhythmias.”
Imricor’s Advantage-MR system and Vision-MR devices are state-of-the-art cardiac ablation tools that allow physicians to perform procedures under real-time MRI guidance. Unlike conventional x-ray guided procedures, ablations guided by MRI allow physicians to individualize the treatment strategy for each patient’s unique cardiac structure and substrate as well as assess lesion quality and fill gaps in ablation lines during the initial procedure. These benefits have the potential to improve patient outcomes and provide safer, more cost-effective treatment – all in an environment that is free of radiation for both the patient and physician.
“I am very proud, together with Imricor and both Dr. Götte and Dr. Allaart, for our heart center to be able to introduce and apply such a fundamental innovation. We consider this novel technology an important milestone in realizing the full potential of MRI in the field of cardiology,” said Prof. Albert (Bert) van Rossum, vice-director of the Division III, Heart Center Amsterdam UMC, Head of the Dept. Cardiology VUmc, and incoming chairman of the Dutch Society of Cardiology.
“We are thrilled for the opportunity to work with the world-class team at Amsterdam UMC,” said Steve Wedan, CEO of Imricor. “As the first Dutch site to provide radiation-free MRI-guided cardiac ablations for their patients, Amsterdam UMC has once again demonstrated its leadership position in the Netherlands and around the world.”
Imricor Medical Systems is a privately held company committed to unlocking the potential of interventional cardiac magnetic resonance (iCMR) by delivering MR-compatible systems and devices that allow physicians to perform cardiac ablations under real-time MRI-guidance.

Arthur D. Little: Nord Stream 2 Provides Economic Benefits, Generates Innovation and Helps to Develop Contractors’ Businesses21.5.2019 08:00:00 CEST | Pressemelding
The second part of a recent report from Arthur D. Little (ADL) – “Nord Stream 2 economic impact in the construction phase” – analyzes the economic effects (job creation and GDP) of the ongoing project to build two new gas pipelines from Russia to Germany. The report, which is a follow-up to an earlier report created in 2017, analyzes the current status of project investment and concludes that the total economic benefit to the European Union (EU) represents €9.9 billion for building the pipelines. In comparison to the first report (2017), which was carried out in the procurement phase, more than twice as much CAPEX has now been committed and spent in several EU and non-EU countries now that the project is in the middle of construction. More than 1,000 contractors from all over Europe and Russia are contributing to the realization of the project. This includes both large international firms providing materials or construction services and small enterprises providing expert services. Furt
