New scanners bring high-tech imaging to operating rooms

By: OR Manager

New high-tech scanners, once seen only in major medical centers, are making their way into more hospitals. The rapid 3-D imaging takes the OR far beyond fluoroscopy. Surgeons say they can improve results and make surgery safer. Before the patient leaves the OR, they can scan the brain to make sure they have removed all of a tumor. They can see that a pedicle screw is properly placed while the patient is still in surgery.
