Removing Brain Cancer Like No One Else Can

The question always looms for brain tumor patients after surgery: “Did you get it all?” Surgeons at OSF HealthCare Illinois Neurological Institute and OSF HealthCare Saint Francis Medical Center now have the ability to assess your brain – mid-procedure – arming them with information that helps avoid critical areas of your brain. This technology lowers the chance of injuring healthy brain tissue or leaving behind portions of a tumor.

Now, thanks to advanced intraoperative MRI (iMRI) technology, surgeons can see tumors in real time - something they have never before been able to do.
