Dell Children's Medical Center expands neuroscience centre with IMRISneuro system

IMRIS : 17 June, 2008  (Application Story)
As part of the expansion of its neuroscience centre, Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas has purchased IMRISneuro, the world's most advanced neurosurgical imaging solution.
A world class leader in complex paediatric care, Dell Children's serves a 46-county region and strives to give families the option of expert neurosurgical care closer to home.

'We are absolutely committed to becoming a world class Centre of Excellence for paediatric neurosciences in Texas,' commented Dr. Tim George, chief of service paediatric neurosurgery. 'The addition of leading edge technology such as IMRISneuro goes a long way to helping us meet that goal.'

IMRISneuro is a fully integrated operating room including the IMRIS one-of-a-kind, movable high field MRI. Dell Children's Medical Center will be one of only 18 hospitals in the world to house IMRISneuro and the first in Texas to install the rotating, ceiling mounted MRI. The new technology allows surgeons to safely image patients in the operating room during brain surgery, helping to rule out complications before the patient leaves the OR.

David Graves, president and chief executive officer of IMRIS said, 'In the hands of the neurosurgical team at Dell, we believe our technology will contribute to positive surgical outcomes for children suffering brain related tumors and disease. It is a testament to our product, IMRISneuro, to be the chosen iMRI technology of one of the leading paediatric centres in the US.'

No other system offers the same degree of safety and precision for the surgical team and the patient. IMRISneuro does not require the patient to be transported for scanning during the procedure, so optimal patient positioning for the procedure is never compromised. Clinical workflow and surgical access to the patient is not negatively affected since the magnet is completely removed from the operating room when scanning is complete.

At Dell Children's, the MRI machine will move between an operating theatre and an adjacent diagnostic suite providing multi-functional capabilities to the hospital's neuroscience team. To ensure the widest patient access to the technology, future plans include the addition of a second operating room that will also be served by the same IMRIS movable MRI scanner.

Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas is a member of the Seton Family of Hospitals, the leading provider of healthcare services in Central Texas, with 23 clinical locations throughout the region. The Seton Family of Hospitals includes the only Heart Transplant Center in Central Texas; the busiest Level II Trauma Center in the state; and the first two Designated Stroke Centers in Texas to receive a Gold Seal of Approval by the Joint Commission.
