AKRON -- Akron General Medical Center Acquires Brainsuite iMRI, iCT.
Brainlab Technology will be part of new Neuroscience Institute Brainlab, a manufacturer of software-driven systems for targeted, less-invasive medical treatments, has announced that Akron General Medical Center will install both Brainsuite iMRI and iCT, making Akron General one of only a handful of hospitals in the world to offer both solutions.
The fully integrated neurosurgical suites will be an integral part of Akron General's new Neuroscience Institute.
Brainsuite iMRI masters the technological challenges of placing an MR scanner in the OR by digitally integrating all components. This supports surgeons during a procedure in identifying critical functional areas and pathways within the brain and ensures that the tumor is more completely removed.
Brainsuite iCT integrates a multi-slice intra-operative CT scanner into the surgical work flow to provide surgeons with precise and up-to-date anatomical information during surgery. In cases where post-operative imaging would be relied upon, intra-operative information allows surgeons to ensure that the objective of the procedure has been achieved.
The integrated navigation system links real-time, intra-operative images with the spatial position of the surgical instruments. This is a key technology to allow for a higher level of accuracy, making surgery more precise and safer for the patient.
