Siemens is reporting the introduction of its new angio system called Axiom Artis dBA Twin :
Together with the new flat detector technology and syngo DynaCT software, the system delivers unique acquisitions thanks to its extremely high contrast and soft tissue differentiation.
The new Axiom Artis dBA Twin radiography system offers flexibility across the entire application spectrum, from neuroradiological and abdominal examinations, to pediatric applications requiring low dose. The unit is equipped with two 30 x 40 flat detectors. The modern biplanar flat detector technology delivers excellent detail resolution that supports physician decision-making in diagnostics and interventions. The biplanar system enables fast display of the anatomy in two planes, providing accurate work through simultaneous imaging. The system also supports the physician’s workflow through programmable detector positioning and intelligent collision protection.
Angiography and syngo DynaCT With the optional syngo DynaCT, Axiom Artis dBA Twin achieves soft tissue differentiation comparable to computed tomography (CT) acquisitions. As a result, intracranial bleeding can be detected faster than ever before, and brain tissue can be displayed in greater detail than with conventional procedures. Using the latest version of syngo DynaCT, which was introduced for the first time at the RSNA (Radiological Society of North America), in critical situations physicians receive clinically-relevant results of the highest possible resolution within one minute, supporting therapy decision-making. In addition, this method is used to check therapeutic measures. The advantage: the patient is not subjected to an additional computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examination.
