The Siemens 3 Tesla MRI provides optimum diagnostic quality along with patient comfort. Its size accommodates people who are larger in size or who are claustrophobic. This MRI system is versatile and provides a wide range of clinical applications today and into the future.
The Gamma Knife uses narrow beams of radiation directed precisely on the cancerous tumor or other abnormal area of the brain, inner ear or head. The treatment is painless. And patients generally return to normal activities the next day. The Gamma Knife can be used to treat adults and children with small to medium brain tumors, abnormal blood vessel formations, epilepsy, trigeminal neuralgia and other neurological conditions.
Gamma Knife treats brain tumor and severe pain in 32 minutes with no side effects.
The Medtronic O-arm® System is a complex surgical imaging technology specifically designed for spine, orthopedic and trauma-related surgeries. It brings intra-operative imaging to a new level with superior image quality, and allows surgeons to ensure that the advanced surgical procedures have been done with precision before patients leave the OR.
The Medtronic PoleStar iMRI navigation system integrates low-field, intraoperative MRI with computer-quided navigation to confirm brain tumor resection. The system adjusts for inherent brain shift and by doing so, helps to eliminate complications that traditionally can arise during resection procedures.
