THE ROYAL MELBOURNE HOSPITAL

Brain surgery is a fascinating area of medicine and has experienced advances in knowledge and technology in recent years. New state-of-the-art technology, which provides real-time imagery to surgeons during operations, has helped to increase the accuracy of brain tumour removal.
PACCAR is proud to have funded the BrainLab Automatic Registration System at The Royal Melbourne Hospital, which enables neurosurgeons to precisely pinpoint and navigate around brain tumours during surgery.
The Royal Melbourne Hospital’s Department of Neurosurgery is at the forefront of brain tumour treatment in Australia and a major hub for the removal of the most complex brain tumours. There were 10,556 admissions from 2011-16. With 8,996 referrals from 2011-16 from all over Australia, the Brainlab Automatic Image Registration is a critical technological requirement for seamless high-precision surgical cancer navigation and has significantly improved how patients with brain tumours are treated.
“PACCAR’s vital support thus far has meant that we can give our patients state-of-the-art-care. We are so grateful for this support which is no doubt helping us save lives.” – Associate Professor Kate Drummond, Head of the Department of Neurosurgery
