Live 3D images of brain’s vasculature will improve patient diagnosis and treatment
The diagnosis and treatment of potentially life-threatening neurological conditions such as aneurysms and strokes will be significantly improved as a result of cutting-edge technology at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital - The Neuro, at McGill University and the MUHC. The new angiosuite, inaugurated today, offers significant advantages to patients and physicians including most importantly, improved safety and outcomes.

Powerful treatment improves patients’ lives and provides new insight into mechanisms of the disease
A new study by Multiple Sclerosis researchers at three leading Canadian centres addresses why bone marrow transplantation (BMT) has positive results in patients with particularly aggressive forms of MS. The transplantation treatment, which is performed as part of a clinical trial and carries potentially serious risks, virtually stops all new relapsing activity as observed upon clinical examination and brain MRI scans. The study reveals how th
