See example below:

Neurosurgeons at Children's Hospital Boston recently removed a brain tumour employing functional mapping of the cortex on a 13-year-old paediatric patient during a live webcast. Children's hosts three to four webcasts annually to showcase its pioneering care and technology to specialists and referring physicians around the world, and to educate consumers on the latest and most innovative medical treatments available.

The webcast features Children's intraoperative MRI system, known as the MR-OR, the first and only system of its kind at a paediatric hospital in the United States. Developed by IMRIS, the iSPACE surgical imaging suite captures digital images through a unique, ceiling-mounted, movable MRI scanner that can be used to take high-resolution, real-time patient scans before, during and after a surgical procedure. This advanced technology allows surgeons to determine the extent of a tumour while the patient is undergoing surgery to ensure its accurate removal.

"Unlike other intraoperative MR machines, the mobile MRI lets surgeons use their usual metal surgical tools because the unit is moved into the shielded garage when surgeons are operating," says Joseph R. Madsen, MD, a neurosurgeon in the Department of Neurosurgery at Children's Hospital Boston and associate professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School.

Dr. Madsen operated on a patient with oligodendroglioma, a low-grade tumour arising from glial cells in the central nervous system.

Video of the surgery is available online. Access requires brief registration.
