  • guidelines
  • Dr. Kartush reiterated that FNM guidelines need to present information not only on which cases should be monitored but also on how monitoring should be done. (enttoday.org)
  • But those two areas of focus are not enough, he pointed out: The guidelines also must stipulate who is qualified to monitor. (enttoday.org)

  • Intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging (iMRI) refers to an operating room configuration that enables surgeons to image the patient via an MRI scanner while the patient is undergoing surgery, particularly brain surgery. (wikipedia.org)
