Intraoperative MRI and Neurophysiologic Suite with Skyra 3 Tesla and All Neurological Siemens Applications. Intraoperative Neurophysiological monitoring using Inomed ISIS 32 channel and MER with Stereotactic facilities adopted to the MRI, are also in the run.
Dr. Munir Elias MD, Ph.D. Site Author.
This site is directed mainly to the medical audience and neurosurgeons, partially aimed to present the operative and academic activities of Prof. Munir A. Elias Shawash over 37 years period. Here the neurosurgeon can find the standards and new modifications in the treatment strategies in all pathologies involving the skull base with certain approaches and some combination to make the resection of the tumor and correction of the pathology in more secure environment.
The site is part of more widespread
field of neurosurgery, including paraplegia, brain tumor, spinal cord injuries, head injury, pain
management strategies, including neuralgia of different etiologies, movement
disorders. Neurosurgeon needs a very long way to understand that, experience is
important in this field of medicine - neurosurgery.
Skyra MRI with all clinical applications in the run since 28-Novemeber-2013.
Inomed ISIS IOM highline with 32 channel and Neuroexplorer version 4.2 is functioning for several months, starting from 01-August-2007. For more detailed information about this functional neuronavigation machine with its early alarming signals, please refer to inomed.com
