MIMRICAbout Minimally Invasive MR Interventional Center The Minimally Invasive MR Interventional Center (MIMRIC) is part of Stanford University’s Department of Radiology. MIMRIC utilizes the exquisite anatomic detail of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to deliver precise, minimally invasive MRI-guided therapies with rapid recovery times. Our exceptional team of medical experts, including doctors, nurses, physician and medical assistants, technologists, and scientists, works together to address each individual patient's needs, with the goal of improved patient care. Our radiologists have all undergone specialized training in MRI as well as MRI-guided procedures, allowing us to incorporate cutting-edge innovations in MRI into our daily practice. We can customize images to track ongoing therapies in real time while highlighting critical anatomic structures such as adjacent nerves or blood vessels. This versatility and detail permit careful planning for minimally invasive therapeutic approaches and open the door to treating people with a range of ailments Collaboration is central to our mission. We work as part of a multidisciplinary team with specialists from Neurosurgery, Oncology, Orthopedic Surgery, Gynecology, and Urology to deliver the highest-level care possible for our patients.
