Scanning Systems, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Neurosurgical
Definition : Open magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanning systems dedicated to the imaging of the brain. The gap between the magnetic poles of the scanner is designed to accommodate the patient's head; the open side design permits easy access to the patient head from two or more sides. Neurosurgical MRI scanning systems are intraoperative systems used in neurosurgery for visualization, providing real-time guidance for the neurosurgeon. The 3-D capabilities of these systems may be useful in planning and performing stereotactic procedures.
