    The neurosurgery operating room incorporates new angiography/CT equipment

    The integrated neurosurgery operating room has recently been renovated to continue offering the latest and best technology in intraoperative imaging. In this case, angiography/computed tomography (CT) equipment has been incorporated into the facilities, a new tool that allows for further improvement of both patient safety and the efficiency of interventions and which has been acquired thanks to European Union funds through the Investment Plan in High Technology Equipment (INVEAT). Thanks to this new equipment, the integrated neurosurgery operating room significantly improves its performance and thus increases its quality of care. “With the new angiogram we manage, on the one hand, to improve patient safety during interventions and minimize the risk of complications, and on the other we manage to be more effective. All of this has a direct impact on the patient”, explains Dr Joaquim Enseñat, head of the Neurosurgery Service at Hospital Clínic and neurosurgeon at barnaclínic+.
