The Advanced Multimodality Image Guided Operating (AMIGO) suite is a state-of-the-art medical and surgical research environment that houses a complete array of advanced imaging equipment and interventional surgical systems. Multidisciplinary teams of specialists use this equipment array and the unique design of the suite to efficiently and precisely guide treatment — before, during, and after surgery — without the patient or medical team ever leaving the operating room. This innovative operating and imaging research suite encourages collaboration among multidisciplinary teams of surgeons, interventional radiologists, imaging physicists, computer scientists, biomedical engineers, nurses, and technologists.
Brigham and Women's Hospital is home to the National Center for Image-Guided Therapy (NCIGT), which is the National Institutes of Health's (NIH) central resource for all aspects of research into image-guided procedures. Our multimodality image-guided operating suite is instrumental to advancing the mission of the NCIGT — to provide more-effective patient care.
