LOS ANGELES (October 19, 1998) - A new type of technology known as intraoperative Duplex Scanning was used for the first time at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center last month, and played an important role in saving the life of carjacking victim Mark Watson*. "In fact," says Hrayr Shahinian, M.D., a skull base surgeon and director of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center's Skull Base Institute, "this patient probably would not have survived had he been 'carjacked' just a few years ago instead of this past September, or had he not been taken to a hospital with this type of cutting-edge imaging technology and highly skilled brain, cardiac and surgical intensive care teams."
The above story is based on materials provided by Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Note: Materials may be edited for content and length.
