Neurosurgery with intraoperative MR imaging

Neurosurgical Applications

Tumor resection
Epilepsy
Arteriovenous malformation (AVM)
Aneurysm
Upper C-spine
Frame-based stereotaxy

For neurosurgery, a VISIUS Surgical Theatre features a high-field MR scanner that travels into the OR on-demand to provide intraoperative images of diagnostic quality - without introducing additional risk to the patient - delivering real-time information to clinicians while preserving optimal surgical access and techniques.

VISIUS Surgical Theatre extends vision for clinicians to assist in decision-making by providing:

  • MR images on-demand before, during and after surgery
  • Real-time assessment of extent of resection prior to closing
  • High-field MRs that enable advanced imaging techniques to:
    • Differentiate tumors from healthy tissue
    • Identify white matter tracts using DTI
    • Visualize tumor’s proximity to eloquent areas using fMRI

VISIUS Surgical Theatre provides enhanced precision in surgery:

  • An intraoperative imaging environment that preserves established surgical techniques and patient positioning strategies
  • With unique patient handling and head fixation technology, the patient’s head can be placed in positions that optimize surgical access and image quality
  • Standard surgical instruments and devices can be used as MR exits the room completely when not imaging

VISIUS Surgical Theatre enables intraoperative imaging without added risk:

  • No patient movement once positioned for surgery
  • Anesthesia and patient monitoring remains safe and secure
  • Sterility of surgical environment maintained

Intraoperative MR Imaging | IMRIS

VISIUS Surgical Theatre delivers intraoperative MR image quality equivalent to diagnostic imaging using 1.5T and 3T MR scanners with a 70cm bore diameter to suit a wide range of patients. High-field scanners enable advanced imaging capabilities, including spectroscopy, fMRI and DTI that are not available on low-field systems. IMRIS’ patented technology for transporting the MR scanner is designed to provide enhanced safety and utility.

Configurations | IMRIS

In a two-room configuration, a theatre for surgery and/or interventions is adjoined to either a magnet bay, where the MR remains until needed for intraoperative imaging, or a complete diagnostic room where the MR can be used for diagnostic imaging. VISIUS Surgical Theatre can be configured in two-room and three-room configurations to suit a wide range of clinical applications and to maximize utilization of the space and equipment.
