December 6, 2013 — Siemens Healthcare introduced an angiography system optimized for broad clinical utilization at the Radiological Society of North America Annual Meeting (RSNA 2013). The system, Artis one, is designed for routine interventions, including revascularizations of peripheral arterial or venous occlusions, functional tests of dialysis shunts in patients with kidney failure, diagnostic angiographies of narrowed coronary arteries and pacemaker implantations.
 
Flexible With Low Space Requirement
Despite being floor-mounted, the Artis one is similar in positioning flexibility to ceiling-mounted systems and requires substantially less space; the new system occupies only 269 square feet, compared to the traditional 484 square feet required by ceiling-mounted systems. The Artis one features several axes that users can move independently of one other, enabling physicians and hospital staff to easily position the system where needed, regardless of where they are standing. The Artis one covers body heights of up to 6 feet, 10 inches without the need for patient repositioning, even for peripheral vessel imaging. When necessary, the system allows free access to the patient's head, enabling optimal care during the procedure.
 
Buttons on the Artis one’s tableside console are tactile and can be manipulated easily even under the sterile covering. Since the on-screen menu allows the physician to navigate directly using the heads-up display, all information regarding the procedure remains directly in front of the operator. The system’s 30-inch display delivers images up to 90 percent larger than conventional 19-inch monitors.
 
Premium Aplications, Powerful X-ray Tube
Previously available only with Siemens’ family Artis Q and Artis Q.zen, Artis one’s Clearstent Live application for interventional cardiology allows the physician to mask out movement of the beating heart and enable stent placement in precisely the correct position. The Artis one is also equipped with the proven "Megalix" X-ray tube of the Artis zee system family, featuring flat emitter technology. Using a tube current of up to 250 milliamperes (mA), the Artis one generates images of outstanding quality and high-contrast resolution. To keep physician and patient radiation exposure as low as possible, Artis one offers an extensive feature set for dose reduction.
 
By using 20 percent less energy than Siemens’ Artis zee floor-mounted system, Artis one also helps reduce operational costs. This is achieved primarily through components manufactured by Siemens for industry automation.
 
Artis one is available in multiple configurations that are tailored to fit a broad range of clinical requirements. The system is under review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is not available for sale in the United States.
