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:
