Siemens Introduces New Syngo Guidance Features for Artis Angiography Systems
December 14, 2016—Siemens AG introduced its new separately managed health care business, Siemens Healthineers, at the 102nd Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), which was held November 27 to December 2 in Chicago, Illinois.
At the RSNA meeting, Siemens Healthineers presented two new features recently approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for the company's Pure platform to simplify the adoption and utilization of advanced features on the company’s Artis zee, Artis Q, and Artis Q.zen angiography systems.
To aid clinicians in endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR), Siemens' Syngo EVAR guidance offers automated detection of vessel walls on computed tomography datasets as well as automatic placement of landmarks for three-dimensional image guidance. Additionally, Syngo EVAR guidance suggests the optimal angulation of C-arms for precise deployment.
For the treatment of coronary chronic total occlusions (CTOs), the Syngo CTO guidance automatically segments coronary computed tomography angiography images and provides procedural guidance.
