Intra Operative Scanning


Intra-operative MRI

Bergman, Ross and Partners are the only radiology firm in Africa with a well-established, fully functioning intra-operative MRI suite for neurosurgery.

The facility was set up in 2009; designed and constructed in conjunction with Netcare N1 City Hospital, GE Healthcare and the late Dr G. Coetzee – resident neurosurgeon.

This facility is used during complex neurosurgical procedures involving removal of brain tumours.

The MRI scanner is in direct communication with the neurosurgical operating room.

  • This allows patients to be scanned during their procedure, whilst still under anaesthesia.
  • This provides the neurosurgeon with vital information regarding complete or incomplete removal of tumors. It facilitates the more accurate and complete removal of tumors.
