The latest imaging technology

Patients with aneurysm, arteriovenous malformation (AVM) and other problems with vessels inside the brain can now be treated with the latest neuro imaging technology available at Sacred Heart Medical Center, the neuro biplane suite.

The technology includes three dimensional angiography, an x-ray that is used to see blood flow in the vessels brain. The state-of-the-art suite includes a number of digital flat screens both inside and outside the operating area.  It is capable of producing cross-sectional images of the brain, like a CT scan. This dramatically improved view cuts operating time, which means less radiation, fewer injections of contrast dye, and lower likelihood of complications.

Neuro biplane angiography is the latest in minimally invasive technologies available at Sacred Heart Medical Center. The addition of the biplane has expanded Sacred Heart's ability to care for patients with stroke, vascular disease, aneurysms and other complex neurological and vascular conditions.
