Siemens Healthineers introduces innovative robot-supported Artis pheno angiography system





At this year’s Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago, USA, the separately managed healthcare business of Siemens AG is presenting itself for the first time under its new brand name, Siemens Healthineers.

The new name underlines the company’s pioneering spirit and its engineering expertise in the healthcare industry. With a new strategic direction, Siemens Healthineers aims to enable healthcare providers around the world to meet their current challenges and to excel in their respective environments. Through products and solutions designed to increase efficiency and to reduce costs, Siemens Healthineers is setting new trends in healthcare together with its customers – working under the motto “Engineering Success. Pioneering Healthcare. Together.”

Siemens Healthineers presents at RSNA 2016 the innovative robot-supported Artis pheno angiography system. Artis pheno was developed for use in minimally invasive surgery, interventional radiology and interventional cardiology.

The zen40HDR flat panel detector and the GIGALIX X-ray tube give the Artis pheno outstanding image quality. Resolution for 2D imaging is four times higher compared to prior systems of Siemens Healthineers in all recording processes thanks to the system's new 2k recording technology.

The StructureScout feature can adapt and optimize imaging parameters to best suit the material structure of the area being X-rayed, which enables even less radiation to be used compared to prior systems of Siemens Healthineers . Artis pheno is designed to support treatment of multimorbid patients, and can be fitted with a comprehensive range of optional software applications to deal with complex cases.Thanks to the hygiene approach developed especially for Artis pheno, the system has large, sealed surfaces with fewer spaces, which helps customers with system cleaning.
