The McNear Neuroradiology Interventional Suite
The McNear Neuroradiology Interventional Suite suite uses a “biplane” for 3-D imaging to allow a neuroradiologist to pinpoint the area of interest such as a tumor, malformation or brain bleed. The room and the equipment give physicians the ability to quickly diagnose and treat patients.
TMC and Radiology Ltd. are working together to provide 24/7 coverage by interventional neuroradiologists as part of the hospital's comprehensive stroke program.
About G.R. McNear
G. Roger McNear, originally from Scotland, was a retired manager of European operations for the U.S. Rubber Co. He was a patient at TMC needing emergency brain surgery. Following his successful recovery, he wanted to honor his surgeon by making a significant contribution to further his work in neurosurgery. As a result, a planned gift through his estate established the G.R. McNear Fund for Neurosurgery at Tucson Medical Center. The proceeds of the fund have resulted in the McNear Neuroradiology Interventional Suite.
