Artis zee MP provides rapid image acquisition and increases departmental workflow
Frenchay Hospital, part of North Bristol NHS Trust, has recently installed an Artis zeeTM Multi-purpose (MP) interventional imaging system from Siemens Healthcare. The new system, located in the X-ray department, replaced an existing Siemens system which the hospital had been using for over ten years. The new system is being used for a number of procedures including fluoroscopy, proctogram examinations, transjugular liver biopsies and stent insertions, as well as handling a general interventional workload.
The Artis zee MP offers rapid image acquisition and post-processing capabilities, helping to improve departmental workflow. It is equipped with all the latest CARE (Combined Applications to Reduce Exposure) features and CLEAR post processing technology, supporting excellent image quality at the lowest achievable doses. The hospital selected the system from Siemens because it was felt it would be a reliable and flexible imaging solution that perfectly met departmental requirements and came from a trusted vendor.
“One of the reasons for choosing the Artis zee MP from Siemens Healthcare was because we were already comfortable with using the advanced interface on Siemens imaging systems,” states Alison Bohin, Radiographer at Frenchay Hospital. “The installation was exceptionally well organised and the clinical applications specialists have been extremely helpful. We have been really impressed with the image quality and are confident that we made the right choice choosing Siemens to supply our new system.”
“The Artis zee MP interventional imaging system has proved an ideal choice for Frenchay Hospital,” states Darren Parker, Regional Sales Manager at Siemens Healthcare. “It is a versatile system ideally suited to a busy X-ray department and we are delighted that the hospital chose to replace their legacy Siemens system with a modern and efficient equivalent. We look forward to continuing our excellent long-standing relationship with Frenchay Hospital, so that it continues to deliver excellent patient care.”
