The OR radiology technician

The OR radiology techs are an integral part of neurosurgical care. Nearly all spinal surgeries and many cranial surgeries require intraoperative imaging.

We use MRI and CT based intraoperative navigation, the C-arm, the flat plate x-ray machine, and the O-arm to safely and accurately perform surgery. The radiology techs are in the room with us to help with all of these technologies.

In 2017 we did 340 intraoperative CT scans with the O-arm. We used intraoperative x-ray in 492 cases. We also used stealth navigation in several additional cases.

We are grateful for all the work radiology techs do to help care for the patients.
