Addenbrooke’s Hospital installs new cardiac imaging system

Siemens Healthcare UK : 16 September, 2008  (Application Story)
Addenbrooke’s Hospital has installed a floor mounted Artis zee cardiac imaging system from Siemens with an integrated Axiom Sensis Lite XP recording solution.
The dedicated Cardiac Catheter Unit opened in June 2008 and provides a diagnostic cardiac catheterisation service and permanent pacemaker insertions.

Clinicians at the hospital have identified the Artis zee’s flexible C-arm as beneficial when performing procedures. Before an examination, the C-arm can be parked away from the examination table, making the room less daunting to the patient and allowing the staff more room for preparation before the procedure. The tableside control makes it easy to manoeuvre the high speed C-arm around the patient to acquire all images needed.

The Artis zee incorporates the latest flat plate technology to produce high quality diagnostic images whilst giving the lowest possible radiation doses.

“The Artis zee is user and patient friendly. It is easy to use, controls are clearly laid out and it delivers smooth manoeuvrability” stated Jenny Treherne, lead radiographer for the Cath Lab at Addenbrooke’s Hospital. “All the Cardiologists I have worked with here at Addenbrooke’s have commented on how good the image quality is.”

“The Artis zee is a world class interventional imaging system with an array of benefits that will greatly assist clinicians at Addenbrooke’s Hospital,” said Graham Walker, regional sales manager at Siemens Healthcare. “We are delighted it has been selected and successfully installed.”

The Axiom Sensis Lite XP recording solution communicates bi-directionally with the Artis system and enables seamless communication across the lab, the control room and other facilities. The advanced workflow support functions provide information on patient demographic data and dose reporting whenever it is needed to assist clinicians with a fast diagnosis.
