Vascular C-Arm

female physicianHealthAlliance Hospital's Center for Vascular Excellence has added a new ceiling-mounted angiography system that provides physicians with highly detailed images of patients’ blood vessels during diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

Siemens Medical Solutions designed the fully digital Artis Zee C-Arm to enable physicians to view three-dimensional images in high resolution, without distortion common to traditional X-ray techniques. The ergonomic system is designed to quickly and comfortably pivot around the patient, permitting full body coverage with the lowest possible dose of radiation.

Vascular surgeon Dr. Andreas M. Spirig, FACS, said the advanced technology will help provide the highest level of patient care and comfort.

“The Artis Zee is a great addition to the Center for Vascular Excellence,” said Dr. Spirig. “Better images will lead to fast, accurate diagnoses for our patients.”

In addition to blood vessels, the Artis Zee can visualize interventional devices like guidewires, catheters and intravascular stents, allowing physicians to perform a wide range of minimally invasive procedures.
