The 2017 opening of Cambridge Tower A at The University of Kansas Health System brought with it the region's only intraoperative MRI (iMRI) located adjacent to the surgical suite. This allows neurosurgeons to capture brain scans during procedures and use them to evaluate the progress of the procedure. If the images reveal damaged brain tissue remaining, doctors can refine the surgical plan in real time. This allows care teams to improve the results of surgeries, often eliminating the need for a second procedure. It also improves safety, as patients no longer must be moved for imaging while under anesthesia.
