Research Abstract

Launched in 2011, AMIGO is one of the first operating suites in the world with a full array of imaging modalities for use during procedures, enabling less invasive, more effective therapy. Encompassing 5,700 square feet, divided into three separate, yet integrated sterile procedure rooms in which multidisciplinary teams treat patients using multiple imaging modalities. Each room has a separate entrance to the control corridor and support spaces.The Advanced Multimodal Image-Guided Operating (AMIGO) suite is a clinical translational test-bed for research of the National Center for Image-Guided Therapy (NCIGT) at Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) and Harvard Medical School. NCIGT and AMIGO are funded under the Biomedical Technology Resource Centers program of the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering. A unique resource for Image-Guided therapy, AMIGO represents and encourages multidisciplinary cooperation and collaboration among teams of surgeons, interventional radiologists, imaging physicists, computer scientists, biomedical engineers, nurses, and technologists to achieve the common goal of delivering the safest and the most effective state-of-the-art therapy to patients in a technologically advanced and patient-friendly environment. If you are a patient and would like to learn about the offerings of AMIGO, please visit the BWH AMIGO page http://www.ncigt.org/pages/AMIGO.
