"The introduction of the Artis zee family brings enhanced versatility to drive workflow improvements that can help meet the increasing volume in interventional procedures, no matter what the clinical setting," said Claus Grill, vice president, Angiography, Cardiac, and X-ray Systems, Siemens Medical Solutions. "From the innovation of the Artis zeego to imaging excellence of 3D applications like syngo DynaCT, Siemens is uniquely positioned to meet the burgeoning demands of the interventional radiology field as they continue to evolve."
New and enhanced 3D imaging applications included with the Artis zee
-- syngo iPilot, which enables faster, more precise catheter navigation
through 3D roadmapping that superimposes 3D reconstructions onto live
2D fluoroscopy images, 2D roadmaps or digital subtraction angiography
(DSA). The application provides real-time updates of C-arm and table
movements, as well as zoom and source-to-image distance (SID) changes.
-- syngo iGuide, which is designed to brings needle procedures back into
the interventional suite, enabling enhanced comfort for the physician
and freeing up the computed tomography (CT) scanner from this lengthy
procedure. With the superb fluoroscopy image quality of the Artis zee
systems, these procedures can be executed faster and with greater
The Artis zee systems are designed to streamline workflows and create
efficiencies to help keep pace with increased interventional volume.
Intuitive, menu-driven workflows streamline such procedures as obtaining
soft tissue results for both frequent and infrequent users. The Artis zee
systems also enable
