Siemens Introduces 3-D CT for the EP Lab

May 15, 2007 — Siemens has announced the latest innovation in electrophysiology (EP) solutions with the introduction of syngo DynaCT Cardiac, which enables 3D imaging comparable to computed tomography (CT) in the EP lab during procedures.

Building on Siemens' breakthrough syngo DynaCT technology, the new solution enhances diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities by enabling electrophysiologists for the first time to visualize the left atrium in 3D during complex cardiac procedures, virtually eliminating the need for time-consuming pre-procedural CT or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exams.

During an interventional procedure in which CT scans are required, moving the patient out of the sterile environment and onto a CT scanner can be cumbersome and pose risk of complications. syngo DynaCT Cardiac enables CT-like imaging to be performed directly in the EP lab without loss of time or added risk to the patient.

"syngo DynaCT Cardiac has the potential to revolutionize imaging and interventional practices in the cardiac EP lab," said Amin Al-Ahmad, M.D., assistant professor of cardiovascular medicine, Stanford University Medical Center — one of the first facilities in the world to install syngo DynaCT Cardiac. "By opening the door to these new imaging technologies, the impact can be significant on the way in which we deliver healthcare."
