Massachusetts General Hospital is Second in Nation to Acquire Both BrainSUITE(R) iMRI and iCT
Date:8/18/2009

WESTCHESTER, Ill., Aug. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- BrainLAB, a manufacturer of software-driven systems for targeted, less-invasive medical treatments, today announced that Massachusetts General Hospital (Mass General) will install both BrainSUITE iMRI and iCT, making it second in the nation and third in the world to offer both solutions. BrainSUITE iMRI and iCT successfully integrate intra-operative imaging -- from high-field MRI to multi-slice CT -- with surgical navigation, planning and digital data management in the OR. The fully integrated neurosurgical suites will be an integral part of Mass General's new "Building for the 3rd Century."

"We are honored Mass General chose BrainSUITE iMRI and iCT as the neurosurgical foundation of their Building for the 3rd Century. Mass General's leadership and commitment to world-class medical care embodies the intelligence and innovation behind BrainSUITE and we look forward to the advancements in patient care that result from this powerful combination," stated Sean Clark, President, BrainLAB Inc.

BrainSUITE iMRI masters the technological challenges of placing an MR scanner in the OR by digitally integrating all components. MR integration allows advanced intra-operative imaging sequences, such as DTI and fMRI. This supports surgeons during a procedure in identifying critical functional areas and pathways within the brain and ensure that the tumor is more completely removed.

BrainSUITE iCT integrates a multi-slice intra-operative CT scanner into the surgical workflow 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.

BrainSUITE is powered by the digital data management system BrainSUITE NET, which provides surgeons and OR staff intra-operative access to patient data from the hospital's Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS) and controls the flow of all digital data within the OR Suite. A fully integrated OR can improve patient outcomes by providing surgeons with more access and control during complex neurosurgical procedures.
