To clinicians, researchers and technology enthusiasts, the BWH AMIGO suite represents the state-of-the-art in medical and surgical research environments. It offers advanced imaging equipment and interventional surgical systems in an operating room setting to guide treatment before, during and after surgery. To many of our patients, AMIGO represents something more: hope in the face of a frightening diagnosis. When Martha Zentis’ cancer returned, the mother of two found reason to hope, thanks to Alexandra Golby, MD, director of Image-Guided Neurosurgery, and Jessica Read more about Breakthrough Briefing: The Light We Share
From the discovery of x-rays in 1895 to the utilization of ultrasound, MRI, and CT scanners in the 1960s and 70s, health care has long depended on imaging to provide the best quality diagnostics and care for patients. Now, as new forms of imaging such as virtual reality and augmented reality hit the scene, researchers including Jayender Jagadeesan, PhD, of the Surgical Planning Lab in the Radiology Department at BWH, look to bring these imaging techniques into the operating room. As the most immersive type of imaging, virtual reality (VR) takes the user into a
