Siemens has just announced that it has integrated the TruSystem 7500 OR table from TRUMPF (Puchheim, Germany) with its Artis zee and Artis zeego fluoroscopy scanners. The TruSystem 7500 adjusts to just about any position imaginable and is transparent to x-rays, and so can be used in almost any surgical or invasive radiological procedure. TruSystem 7500 OR table is illustrated above, and Artis zeego multi-axis interventional fluoroscope is shown in the picture below.
The Trumpf OR table has been designed especially for this integration and is equipped with a onepiece carbon tabletop, which can be replaced by a segmented universal tabletop. The table column enables the two tops to be exchanged easily. The carbon tabletop is transparent to X-rays and thus ensures that there will be no disruptive artifacts in the images. It is suitable for interventional procedures and minimally invasive surgery. The integration of the OR table with the Siemens angiography systems also make fast rotations and 3-D imaging possible with the surgical C-arm. The modular design of the segmented tabletop enables extremely flexible positioning of the patient, particularly important in orthopedics and neuro surgery. Complicated positions, such as the chest side position, can be achieved quickly with great precision as well as comfort for the patient and staff.
Along with the integrated Trumpf OR table, Siemens continues to offer its Artis tables for the entire Artis zee series, which are available in three designs: as a standard table, a table with Trendelenburg tilting and one with Trendelenburg and lateral tilting.
