Intraoperative 3 Tesla MRI produces faster and high resolution data during brain surgery, and allows complete surgical removal of brain tumors.
In addition to being used for whole-body imaging, Intraoperative 3 Tesla Magnetom Trio TIM MRI facilitates complete removal of tumors by providing rapid imaging during brain surgeries. The system allows imaging during the operation, and enables the surgeon to examine any point he may require in a sterile environment, before closing the surgical area and without waking the patient. This provides the surgeon with information on the size and location of the tumor, even if it is located in a difficult-to-reach area. As risks such as failure to fully remove all residues, causing damage to functional areas and operating on wrong area are eliminated; a second operation is not required.
