A pair of smaller flat screen monitors hang on booms around the surgical table; one is positioned over the right shoulder of the surgical tech and the other at the foot of the bed. The monitors display pre-op MRI images or intraoperative C-arm pictures, letting surgeons check the images without leaving the bedside. Anesthesia providers also have access to a small monitor near their workstation that displays what the surgeon sees in the microscope, letting them titrate medications based on the progress of the case.
