Manchester Royal Infirmary orders Siemens Artis zee interventional radiology systems

Siemens Healthcare UK : 31 July, 2008  (Application Story)
Three Siemens Artis zee interventional radiology systems have been ordered by Manchester Royal Infirmary, part of the Central Manchester and Manchester Children’s University Hospitals NHS Trust.
The devices will be used in angiography, Endoscopy and barium examinations assisting the hospital in improving its workflow, shortening waiting times and meeting the demands of patients from the greater Manchester area.

The Artis zee is a flexible interventional imaging system featuring a large flat detector for high contrast resolution. The system comes with either a floor or ceiling mounted C-arm to suit the type of procedures it will undertake. Manchester Royal Infirmary has ordered a ceiling mounted system for angiography and two multipurpose floor mounted systems for Endoscopy and barium examinations.

The Zee ceiling system allows easy patient access and enables full body coverage through a flexible C-arm which can be positioned on either side or at the head of the patient. Superior image quality, including 3D vessel reconstruction, is consistently achieved through the advanced imaging system which also provides dose saving.

John Brady, regional sales manager at Siemens Healthcare stated, “Manchester Royal Infirmary caters for a large population and we hope that these systems will enable them to increase patient throughput and clinical productivity. The fact that three systems have been ordered is a real testament to the benefits that the Artis zee offers both the patient and clinician.”

Ergonomic design and easy to use controls make the Artis zee a great asset during examinations as different procedures can be conducted quickly and easily. The whole system can be managed using tableside controls, which feature touch screen panels, a mouse-like joystick and an integrated recording solution.

syngo applications are available with the Artis zee to assist in all types of procedures. In Endoscopy examinations the zee multipurpose interfaces perfectly, enabling the clinician to view endoscopic and radiographic images alongside one another, reducing examination times and improving patient comfort. For angiography, syngo Inspace 3D provides superb quality 3D images of vascular structures, further enhancing vessel pathology.
