Brainsuite® is an integrated neurosurgery system that allows for more precise treatment of complicated tumors in sensitive areas of the brain. Brainsuite is the latest advancement in image-guided surgery, providing real-time views of the tumor site with intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging (iMRI).
MD Anderson's Brainsuite is the world's first fully integrated open-bore MRI system with a 70-centimeter magnet, which can accommodate large or obese patients as well as those positioned on their side for surgery. Brainsuite is currently being used on patients with tumors that present a challenge because of size or location.
Brainsuite may also help reduce complications and the need for further surgeries. While it has potential for most neurosurgery patients, Brainsuite will be particularly useful for:
