The engineering of an interventional MRI with a movable 1.5 Tesla magnet.

Abstract

The engineering of a novel intra-operative MRI system is described. A movable, 1.5 Tesla MRI magnet was placed in a neurosurgical operating room without affecting established neurosurgical procedure. The system allows fast, high-quality MR intra-operative imaging of the brain and spine without the necessity of patient transportation. A neuro-navigational… (More)
