UW Health First U.S. Installation of Siemens Artis icono Biplane Angiography System

University of Wisconsin is the first U.S. facility to install system, which enables wide range of interventional procedures

he University of Wisconsin (UW) Health’s University Hospital in Madison, Wis., recently became the first facility in the United States to install the Artis icono biplane angiography imaging system from Siemens Healthineers.

February 12, 2020 — The University of Wisconsin (UW) Health’s University Hospital in Madison, Wis., recently became the first facility in the United States to install the Artis icono biplane angiography imaging system from Siemens Healthineers. 

The cath lab imaging system is a member of the new Artis icono platform of high-precision angiography systems,. The icono biplane has been designed to enhance workflow as well as balance dose and image quality, specifically when visualizing extremely intricate structures in 2-D and 3-D.

“We are delighted to be the first U.S. health system to host this new imaging technology, which will give our neuro-endovascular surgeons the ability to better visualize brain and spinal cord vessels, improve our care of stroke and tumors, and be a platform to deliver future treatments for many brain disorders,” said Robert Dempsey, M.D., chair of the Department of Neurological Surgery at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health. “The ARTIS icono biplane, in the hands of our highly skilled surgeons, will allow UW Health to give our patients accurate diagnoses and treatment plans for these difficult disorders.”

A key feature of the Artis icono platform is the new OPTIQ imaging chain, which ensures optimal image quality while balancing radiation dose to patients and staff. Additionally, the biplane boasts several new features for stroke treatment and other neuro procedures. syngo DynaCT Sine Spin, a new form of cone beam CT, delivers images with fewer cone beam CT artifacts in the basal area of the brain and near the skull. syngo DynaCT Multiphase produces time-resolved cone beam CT volumes without requiring the patient to be moved to a CT scanner. syngo DynaCT High Speed can shorten low-contrast 3-D imaging from 20 seconds to eight, for CT-like images that are less susceptible to movement artifacts. Finally, the Twin Spin feature enables seamless switching between 2-D biplanar imaging and 3-D imaging. Together, these features enable increased visualization of challenging anatomy and accelerate workflow.

Additionally, the Artis icono biplane provides rapid flexibility for multidisciplinary lab use. With Lateral Plane Switch, the user can move the detector’s position from the patient’s right side (for interventional procedures) to the left side (for cardiovascular procedures) in under 90 seconds.
