The hybrid operating theatres of CIGMIT integrates CT and MRI scanners in an operating theatre which can be use during a surgery, providing surgeons with highly precise and up-to-date information.CIGMIT consists of two hybrid operating theatres complemented with a radio surgery centre; forming a comprehensive integrated facility.
1) CIGMIT 1 (MRI Scan)
This operating theatre is connected to a Siemens Magnetom Aera 1.5T MRI scanner and is highly useful for surgical procedures concerning tumours of the brain and intermediate structures.
2) CIGIMIT 2 (CT Scan)
The second operating theatre is connected to a Siemens Somatom AS+ 128-slice CT scanner. Procedures such as head, neck and spinal surgeries would be enhanced with the aid of the CT scanner.While not in use, the scanners can be appropriated for general diagnostic imaging purposes and provide support to the radiology department.
The radiotherapy centre utilizes a Novalis TX radiosurgery machine to provide non-invasive treatment targeting smaller tumours or to complement chemotherapy and/or surgery. Using a multi-directional high-energy beam, cancerous cells can be eliminated while sparing healthy cells.
Digitally connecting the theatres and radiosurgery centre is medical software and surgical navigation system by Brainlab. Digital patient images, acquired before or during a procedure, can be viewed and manipulated to guide the surgeon for better patient
5) Seminar rooms
Connecting the theatres and seminar rooms is a medical visualization
software by MedCom. Medical students can now observe complex surgeries via high-
definition video uplink in the seminar rooms without crowding surgeons and nurses in the
