Ferenc Jolesz, Brigham and Women’s Hospital
Like a driver using GPS in an unfamiliar landscape, surgeons at the newest operating suite in Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital use a variety of sophisticated imaging systems to navigate a patient’s complicated anatomy. This groundbreaking clinical center, called the Advanced Multimodality Image Guided Operating suite, or AMIGO, is the brainchild of Brigham’s Dr. Ferenc Jolesz. It combines in a single location all the most advanced imaging technologies, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), X-ray computed tomography (CT), and ultrasound.
