Award: Principal Award

Category: Medical Device

The NeuroBlate System uses a laser-probe inserted into the brain through a small incision in the skull to heat and kill tumour cells. The minimally invasive procedure is conducted in an MRI machine, enabling surgeons to plan, steer and adjust the laser continuously as it is delivered, which increases precision in treating ablating the cancer lesion and avoids damaging surrounding healthy brain tissue.
