Children’s Minnesota operating first pediatric hybrid intraoperative MR suite in North America

Children’s Minnesota is introducing a hybrid intraoperative MR suite for pediatric patients that can be moved alongside surgical equipment simultaneously for real-time adjustments during operations.

During surgery for brain tumors, epilepsy or traumatic injuries, the Kid Experts team at Children’s Minnesota can move the scanner from the diagnostic room into one of the neurosurgery operating rooms where they can perform scans mid-procedure. Doctors can adapt their plan at the point of care to address any additional abnormalities found, preventing patients from undergoing more procedures.
