ICT REMODELING - INTER-OPERATIVE CT SCANNER
Sacred Heart Hospital required a room to assist with spine and neurological surgery procedures. This 2,200 sf remodeling provided an intense combination of the latest CT technology within an operating room. Tight coordination of drawings and schedules was required to limit disruptions to the adjacent occupied surgical suite throughout construction.
Constructed as a room within a room, the interior walls are vendor-provided lead shields that contain all of the room infrastructure and connection points for the medical equipment, and CT technology. The exterior walls were constructed as a shell to house the ICT suite.
The CT scanner glides over ceiling-mounted rails to the patient when surgeons need to perform a scan during the procedure. After the images are taken, the CT slides back to its original position, and the images from the intraoperative scan are automatically registered to vendor software. Those images also can be fused with scans from other modalities, such as PET.
