COORDINATING THE INSTALLATION
IMRIS HYBRID OPERATING SUITE
With comprehensive program management, we handle the countless variables that emerge when installing high-tech equipment into a hospital environment. We’ve streamlined the installation process, overseeing each step in the project and consolidating the construction – from equipment delivery to rigging and installation.
As with all construction projects, our customers face numerous decisions and challenges that are not easily solved. We work with your facility to understand your goals, address your needs and remove any obstacles, providing a seamless execution of your IMRIS Hybrid Operating Suite. We work collaboratively with hospital architects and general contractors to create a timeline that integrates with your schedule. We stay in close contact with your clinical staff to reduce scheduling interruptions. We do all of this to provide the level of expertise that our customers expect.
STORIES FROM THE OR
Elevating the Installation Experience
How do you get an 7.2 ton magnet, along with the steel infrastructure to support it, into the upper floor of a hospital?
We recently constructed a hybrid IMRIS Surgical Theatre at Tiantan Hospital in Beijing, China. It included the moving iMRI system, one of IMRIS’ core innovations, and installing it required some creative solutions. Fortunately, that’s where we excel.
Working closely with the hospital staff, we temporarily removed some of the building’s large windows, and then used a series of cranes to carefully lift the infrastructural components into the Theatre space.
Installing a surgical theatre is a logistical challenge like no other… especially when you’re working with innovative technology, things that have no precedent. You can’t treat it like a traditional construction project, because there’s nothing traditional about it. You have to have a Program Manager maintaining constant contact with all the stakeholders, especially hospital staff, through every stage of the process. It’s not enough to control what’s happening in your area of construction; the hospital is very active around you, and you have to be mindful of those variables and prepared to adapt.
With comprehensive program management and a solid line of communication, IMRIS is uniquely equipped to tackle the many challenges that emerge during the ‘Creation’ process.

HYBRID OR OF THE FUTURE
INTEGRATING WORLD-CLASS TECHNOLOGIES
We integrate all of the hybrid OR components to efficiently work together in this unique environment. Our industry partners, such as Siemens Healthineers and Hillrom, offer state-of-the-art intraoperative imaging equipment that is specifically designed for use in the OR. When designing IMRIS Hybrid Operating Suites, we ensure your clinical team will be able to safely and efficiently remove and reposition surgical equipment.
IMRIS Hybrid Operating Suites are specifically designed for image-guided procedures, but they are also multifunctional, and the potential extends far beyond a single department or function.
With a single MR scanner for diagnostic and intraoperative imaging, and a technology platform that enables neurovascular procedures, the IMRIS Hybrid Operating Suite is a scalable solution for a wide range of imaging modalities and clinical applications including neurosurgery, interventional radiology, and cardiology.

A two-room configuration generally has a diagnostic room and an operating room. A three-room configuration typically consists of an operating room, a diagnostic room, and a second operating room. All IMRIS suites come with a control room.
