The patient is not required to be transported for scanning, so the optimum patient positioning is always maintained. Clinical workflow and access to the patient is not impacted and the MR scanner is removed completely from the operating room when imaging is complete. This ensures a high degree of safety for both the patient and the surgical environment. As well, when not in use for intraoperative imaging, the MR scanner is available for diagnostic imaging. To date, more than 100 imaging enabled rooms have been selected by leading medical institutions around the world.
