Stereotactic Radiosurgery

BrainThe Gamma Knife radiosurgery system uses targeted beams of radiation to treat brain tumors and abnormalities with surgical precision but no incision. The latest upgrade to the device – in use since April – offers reduced treatment times and the ability to deliver radiation to a broader area, including tumors in the skull base.

3-D Biopsy System

A preliminary study led by Washington University urologists at the Siteman Cancer Center shows this new ultrasound technology increases the accuracy of prostate biopsy. A stationary probe improves patient comfort and – for the first time – provides 3-D images of the prostate gland. It also guides surgeons in obtaining tissue samples from all areas of the gland.

O-Arm Scanner

Rather than using a traditional X-ray with a postoperative CT scan, surgeons can now view the surgical progress on spine patients during procedures using new diagnostic technology. A mobile 3-D scanner called an O-arm allows for adjustments during a procedure, which can reduce the need for a second surgery.
