Removal Of Brain Tumour Through The Eyelid

Never before possibilities in Indian healthcare are created by MIOT International, Chennai through the new full body portable CT scanner: BodyTom®.  BodyTom® ensures the highest precision, less post-operative complications, and better outcomes, and comes with lead lined covers to minimise the dose of radiation in the OR premises. Installed in the department of neurosurgery, at MIOT International, Chennai, BodyTom® is used for Brain – Spine neuro applications along with complex orthopaedic reconstructive surgeries, with Maxillofacial, Trauma, and Stroke applications.

For the first time in India, MIOT Neurosurgeons utilized the natural folding of the eyelid to reach a 4 cm, giant brain tumour without any damage to the eye. Conventionally, such brain tumours require a large opening in the head, leaving deep and ugly scars.  Experts at MIOT International, Chennai devised an innovative and novel strategy to remove such a large tumour using a keyhole approach, leaving no scars.

According to Dr. Prithvi Mohandas, MD from MIOT International, Chennai, “MIOT’s mobile CT scanner makes surgery faster, more accurate and 8 times safer.”

As the world’s first portable, full-body, 32-slice CT (computed tomography) scanner, BodyTom® is a multi-departmental imaging solution capable of transforming any room in the hospital into an advanced imaging suite.  The system boasts an impressive 85cm gantry and 60cm field of view, the largest field of view available in a portable CT scanner.  The battery powered BodyTom® with an innovative internal drive system can easily be transported from room to room and is compatible with PACS, EMR, planning systems, and surgical and robotic navigation systems.

Uniquely designed to accommodate patients of all sizes, BodyTom® provides point-of-care CT imaging wherever high-quality CT images are needed, including but not limited to the operating room, intensive care unit, radiation oncology suites, and the emergency department. The combination of rapid scan time, flexible settings, and immediate image viewing makes the BodyTom® a valuable tool to any facility needing versatile real-time portable imaging.
