Siemens Highlights Artis zeego Angiography System at TCT

August 17, 2009 – Siemens Healthcare will showcase cath lab imaging and workflow enhancements with its hybrid Artis zeego system during the 2009 Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics Annual Conference (TCT) Sept. 21-25 in San Francisco.

Highlights at the Siemens booth at this year’s conference is the first-to-market Artis zeego with small detector, which enables cardiologists to work with greater efficiency and precision. The Artis zeego is part of the Artis zee family of interventional imaging in cardiology, radiology and surgery.

The Artis zee biplane system with mixed detectors (20 cm x 20 cm and 30 cm x 40 cm) provides increased coverage ideally suited for imaging structural heart diseases. The Artis zee biplane system with two small detectors (20 cm x 20 cm) enables biplane acquisition with up to 60 frames per second. The Artis zee ceiling-mounted system features a 20 cm x 20 cm or 30 x 40 cm flat detector and enables flexible positioning around the patient.

The Artis zee floor-mounted system features a 20 cm x 20 cm or 30 cm x 40 cm flat detector and enables easy patient access. The company said its Artis zee floor-mounted with magnetic navigation offers excellent precision in guide wire and catheter steering (also available as biplane solution).

Siemens said Artis zeego uses a revolutionary multiaxis system that has unrivaled flexibility, making it ideal for virtually all cardiovascular procedures in cath labs and hybrid rooms.

Artis zeego features a flexible working height that makes procedures much more comfortable for the clinical team, as well as unique park positions that enable easier access to the patient.

Artis zeego’s exceptional flexibility and outstanding ergonomics enable clinicians to perform hybrid procedures with more efficiency, precision and comfort. The system can be stowed in a variety of compact positions to make the most of the limited space available in OR environments. Due to its multiple axes, Artis zeego offers complete head-to-toe coverage and the advantage of a variable working height, reducing fatigue.

The Artis zee has a medical-grade, large display to provide superb image sharpness for detecting fine details. The color, 8 megapixel resolution, 56-inch screen enables users to select their preferred screen layout for the planned procedure step at tableside, with 12 different screen combinations and more than 200 layout configurations.

Siemens said Artis zee offers workflow enhancements with advanced tools for stent deployment and verification to help improve clinical outcomes for complex procedures. Now integrated into Artis zee systems, IZ3D, a new online quantitative measurement tool, provides high-speed quantification for accurate lesion measurement by generating a 3D model of a vessel that can be rotated freely in space with no foreshortening effects, enabling physicians to precisely assess a lesion’s diameter profile and the degree of stenosis. It also enables accurate measurement of lesion length to simplify stent selection.

The Artis zee family also offers IC Stent for virtually instant reconstruction of a stent, while operated at table side with a single push of the button. IC Stent is a processing package that enhances the visibility of the deployed stent. The result is available in less than 30 seconds.

For improved visualization of coronary lesions, Siemens said Artis zee provides imaging excellence for motion detection, enhanced vessel edges, intelligent noise reduction, and increased stent visibility. It also provides seamless integration with AXIOM Sensis XP, the first completely integrated recording system to combine electrophysiology, hemodynamics, and reporting in one unit. AXIOM Sensis XP offers convenient database management, automated report generation, and seamless integration with the hospital information system, the company said.
