Using our equipment

The clinical use of all equipment is limited to registered and adequately trained clinicians and supporting staff. Engineers and researchers may use equipment for training or technically oriented simulation settings after they have received proper instructions and non-disclosure has been agreed upon.
 
All Radboudumc quality and safety protocols – including all pre-use safety verification checks – apply during clinical use.

About our equipment

Embedded within the Radboudumc central OR suite, three MITeC operating rooms have truly unique layout and equipment. In the center of these three operating rooms (OR’s), the MRI OR homes a large bore 3T MRI (Siemens Skyra). This MRI OR has direct patient transfer options with both an X-ray hybrid OR (Siemens Artis Zeego) and a standard OR that was designed to allow for larger mobile equipment.
 
All three OR’s are fully equipped with:
  • Both DICOM and non-DICOM Image handling technologies (manipulation such as image fusion, segmentation and 3D reconstruction, store/retrieve, Video-conference)
  • Standard and advanced surgical interventional techniques such as surgical navigation and NIR imaging
  • A range of energy delivery techniques (Laser, Cryo, HIFU, RF)
In all three OR’s, all standard and advanced anesthesia techniques can be applied. All equipment is intended for clinical use within the Radboudumc and setup and connected to its clinical data systems; Integration with EPR and other relevant IT systems is standard.
 
This layout and range of techniques perfectly facilitates image guided procures using MRI, 3D X-ray and/or video techniques in any desired combination allowing surgeons and interventional radiologists to optimally control the accuracy of the interventional procedure and pursue innovative, quick and safe new techniques to offer maximum control and thus maximum quality of treatment to the patient.
