A superconducting Signa 1.5 T magnetic resonance (MR) suite was modified and multiple upgrades were introduced to make it effective and safe for minimally invasive surgical procedures guided by imaging techniques. Two MR compatible video projection cameras and monitors from Resonance Technology were installed inside the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MR) room allowing visualization of MR and/or ultrasound (UTZ) images during surgical procedures. The interventional therapist can now stand at the patient's side and visualize MR and/or UTZ images in the room. A permanent MR compatible camera and light source were installed at the opening of the magnet bore which allows close-up visual monitoring of the patient and treatment site. MR compatible anesthesia systems (Ohmeda Company) and monitoring equipment (In Vivo Research, Inc.) are now available. A standard ultrasound (UTZ) system was modified and adapted by General Electric Medical Systems for use in this MRI suite.
