Back in January of this year, the Central Valley Business Journal reported on area hospitals and their upgrades and expansions. Memorial Medical Center in Modesto has employed one of those upgrades to provide more state-of-the-art patient care.
The health organization recently opened its new biplane neurological suite, which was featured in the Business Journal story. The suite utilizes two rotating cameras to create 3D views of blood vessels leading to patients’ brains, helping neurosurgeons to provide better treatment of clots that lead to stroke.
“The technology offers a minimally invasive method to locate the clots in the brain and to use imaging to help guide surgeons as they remove the clots,” said Sergio Camarillo, director of patient care services at MMC.
Not only will the technology aid in locating clots, thereby increasing positive outcomes, it helps for a faster recovery.
