In February 2006, our hospital officially opened the Magnetic Resonance / X-ray / operation (MRXO) suite, which is the first hybrid neurosurgical procedure suite to combine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography and angiography with a neurosurgical operating room. For this suite, we have developed a specially designed fully functional magnetic resonance (MR)-compatible flexible operating table. Here, we describe the details of this operating table and discuss its advantages. Its MR-compatible tabletop can be bent during surgery. The specially designed MR-compatible flexible operating table for the MRXO suite reduces limitations on neurosurgeons during standard neurosurgical procedures. Also, it does not give rise to imaging artifacts on MRI. The specially designed MR-compatible flexible operating table resolves the neurosurgeon's dilemma over use of intraoperative MRI.
