Baptist Health Neuroscience Center have a new ally as they perform delicate and complex brain surgery. Baptist Health Neuroscience Center is the first and only facility in Miami-Dade using intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging or iMRI. The device is mounted on overhead rails, allowing it to move between two dedicated operating rooms, giving neurosurgeons the ability to treat complex brain tumors with real-time, image-guided precision. The installation of iMRI was part of the $100 million expansion of Baptist Health Neuroscience Center,
Baptist Hospital's Surgery Center and
Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute.
"With intraoperative MRI, technology and integration come together to allow us to deliver the highest level of precision, quality and safety in our neurological surgical procedures," says
Sergio Gonzalez-Arias, MD, Medical Director of Baptist Health Neuroscience Center.
