Although iMRI suites are not yet commonplace, they have been implemented in many centers, with dozens more in the planning and building stages. 5 T. More recently, 3 T suites have been implemented. 0 T will be presented. Fundamental to any such consideration is the issue of what one is trying to achieve. Specifically, if the intraoperative MR scanner is to be used largely for monitoring tumor resection, for updating surgical guidance systems, and for post-operative tumor and tumor bed assessment, the MR scanner, suite geometry, and patient accessibility are less important.

Subsequent developments of frame-based stereotactic biopsy offered the advantage of being very accurate, but could not overcome the potential risks to the patient. Rather, with the advent of the CT scanner, the neurosurgeon would finally be able to carefully plan a safe trajectory, avoiding critical vascular and other structures. Nevertheless, brain shift could potentially override such planning and complications could still occur. Moreover, frame-based techniques were and are compromised by significant patient discomfort during frame placement, the need of preoperative imaging and associated delays from the time of imaging to the time of the procedure, and the persistent “blind” nature of the procedure, as the needle passes through the brain.
