Pennsylvania hospital gets $1M to buy spinal imaging tool


Lehigh Valley Health Network-Muhlenberg in Bethlehem, Pa. recieved $1 million in state funding to purchase a new O-arm from Medtronic, reported Nov. 11.

Surgeons at the hospital completed more than 2,000 spine surgeries in the last year, including 1,200 at locations utilizing O-arms, the report said. The new O-arm will replace an older unit no longer in use.

Medtronic's O-arm takes a 360-degree scan of the spine, which helps surgeons plan procedures.
