Artis zee Provides Enhanced Imaging

April 1, 2008 – Siemens showcased its Artis zee family at the ACC conference this week, its next generation of interventional imaging systems for cardiology, designed for enhanced image quality, optimized workflow and increased return on investment.

One of the first facilities in North America to receive Artis zee systems is Bethesda Heart Institute in Boynton Beach, FL.

“Artis zee from Siemens is extremely fast and provides superb imaging,” said Louis D. Snyder, M.D., medical director, Bethesda Heart Institute. “The imaging enhancements mean we can see vessel edges more clearly and position stents with greater confidence resulting in more effective treatment for our patients, as well as greater efficiencies in our workflow.”

The innovativeness of the Artis zee family is exemplified by the recently FDA 510(k) cleared Artis zeego, which extends imaging capabilities through virtually unrestricted C-arm positioning. The ability to deliver two non-concentric rotations supports advanced cross-sectional imaging, which is not achievable with traditional C-arm systems. The Artis zeego makes it possible for the position of the isocenter to be adjusted according to the procedural needs or the height of the physician, which is reportedly beneficial to a physician during lengthy procedures, while wearing a heavy lead-shielded apron. Furthermore, the Artis zeego can be parked compactly to give the clinical team easier access to the patient, making it ideal for hybrid rooms, said Siemens.

Additionally, Frost & Sullivan recently selected the Artis zeego as winner of the 2008 Frost & Sullivan Technology Innovation Award at their Excellence in Medical Technologies Awards banquet.
