The challenge of ensuring patient infection protection in the most sophisticated image-guided surgical suite in the world demanded the unique expertise and guidance of EH&E’s healthcare engineering and environmental specialists. BWH’s AMIGO1 Suite is the first OR to provide interventional radiologists and surgeons with immediate access to a full array of advanced imaging modalities for use during multiple procedures. The 5,700 sf suite includes a central OR and two adjoining rooms and it houses real-time state of the art imaging modalities such as X-ray fluoroscopy and ultrasound, as well as cross sectional digital imaging systems like CT, high field strength MRI and high resolution PET.
