A new multi-functional operating room (OR) table adapted for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) will allow neurosurgeons to see critical anatomical detail during surgery, without moving the patient from the operating table.

The innovative surgical table is the result of a collaboration between Hill-Rom Holdings (Batesville, IN, USA) and IMRIS (Minnetonka, MN, USA) which melds Hill-Rom's TruSystem 7500 Surgical Table platform with the IMRIS MR Neuro interchangeable tabletops and it’s head fixation portfolio. The table, which is segmented for optimal patient positioning, is controlled via a remote unit or by using the column control panel.

The new table is an essential component of the IMRIS Surgical Theatre, which features a moving, ceiling-mounted intraoperative MRI, computerized tomography (CT), X-ray angiography, and fluoroscopy imaging solutions for a host of standard neurological operations and minimally invasive surgery (MIS) procedures, including upper c-spine orthopedics, aneurysms, arteriovenous malformation, deep-brain stimulation (DBS), drug-delivery, tumor resection, tumor ablation, chiari malformation, and epilepsy-related procedures.

“Our customers challenged us to develop a premium surgical table to be a key component of the IMRIS Surgical Theatre, with the reliability and flexibility to meet the needs of current and future surgical applications,” said Andrew Flanagan, President and CEO of IMRIS. “Partnership with Hill-Rom surgical solutions leverages the reliability and advanced features of the TruSystem surgical table platform together with the MR Neuro tabletop and head fixation system. This new offering will become a key part of our mission to optimize the surgical workflow.”

“We're thrilled to partner with IMRIS, to offer enhanced flexibility and efficiency for surgeons with the integration of the IMRIS Surgical Theatre and the TruSystem 7500 MR Neuro Surgical Table,” said Francisco Canal Vega, president of Hill-Rom Surgical Solutions. “Our proven reliability, ergonomic design and range of options will prove to be a valuable addition to the IMRIS portfolio, meeting the demands of the neurosurgeon and the expectations of hospital administration.”
