ClearPoint Neuro, Inc., a global therapy platform company that provides navigation and delivery to the brain, today announced that it has obtained 510(k) approval for version 2.1 of the ClearPoint Neuro Navigation software.
Version 2.1 of the ClearPoint System is intended to provide stereotaxic guidance for the placement and operation of instruments or devices when planning and performing neurological procedures in the MR environment and in conjunction with MR.

Key customer benefits of the 2.1 software include improved ease of use for clinicians, improved visualization of medical imaging datasets, provision of a new set of trajectory planning tools, the introduction of new tools workflow for clinical trial gene therapy clinicians, and numerous technical and performance improvements that will help streamline and streamline clinical workflow.
