Safe & Efficient Imaging On Demand
When the surgeon requires imaging in a VISIUS Surgical Theatre, a high field (1.5 T and 3T) MR on ceiling rails travels to the patient for scanning. Safety interlocks and an advanced collision detection system control the movement of the MR for the safety of the patient and clinical team.
Optimized for Intraoperative Imaging
The MR is customized for imaging in multiple locations with patented shimming technology. The system supports DTI, MRA, MPRAGE, diffusion and 3D T1/T2 sequences with minimal acquisition time for intraoperative imaging.
Imaging coils are specifically designed for intraoperative imaging during neurosurgery. The flexible two-piece design allows full surgical access and enhances patient comfort. The posterior element can be left in position during surgery while the anterior section can be easily positioned and removed at any time, streamlining the transitions between surgery and imaging. The ability to conform the coil to the anatomy and position it independent of the angle of the patient provides an enhanced signal-to-noise ratio for exquisite quality images.
Optimizing Patient Positioning
Operating tables and head fixation devices are specifically designed to work together with coils to enhance images and optimize patient positioning for surgical access and imaging. The MR-safe head fixation device enables adult and pediatric patients to be placed in prone, supine and lateral positions. Its low profile design makes it easy to position the head in the MR iso-center for optimal imaging, and allows a prone patient to be imaged with the head lower than the table.
Fully functional, MR-compatible OR tables are uniquely designed for surgery and intraoperative imaging of the head, neck and spine. A removable OR table(available in US and Canada only) provides added flexibility to the VISIUS Surgical Theatre enabling surgeons to interchange OR tables for specific procedures.
