Siemens' Artis zeego Delivers Rotational Angiography

Siemens offers the Artis zeego, a robotic-assisted positioning capability for interventions in both radiology and cardiology, as well as the developing OR environment, designed to offer greater flexibility of movement and image acquisition.

Rotational angiography delivers large-volume syngo DynaCT to visualize the entire abdomen or the entire thoracic spine showing the complete region of interest. Ergonomically designed working positions are available due to the system’s isocenter, in order to increase operator comfort during long and complex procedures. Parking positions maximize the use of room space during patient transfers. When the system is not in use it can be suited for the OR or hybrid environment.

Combined with the existing 2D and 3D features and applications common across the entire Artis zee family, the Artis zeego is poised to deliver enhancements in imaging and workflow.

The Artis zeego is now available with small detector, which enables cardiologists to have optimized visualization of the heart while achieving steeper angles. A medical-grade large display further enhances the solution offering with a full-color, 56-inch screen where users can select their preferred screen layout for the planned procedure at tableside.
 
The Artis zee family also now integrates with IZ3D, an online quantitative measurement tool which provides high-speed quantification for accurate lesion measurement. Physicians can use the tool to precisely assess a lesion’s diameter profile and the degree of stenosis via a 3D model of the vessel. This model can be rotated freely in space to eliminate foreshortening effects,
