Siemens has announced that Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital has incorporated some of its technology into its newly-refurbished interventional radiology theatre.
The NHS hospital has invested in an Artis zee ceiling-mounted system from Siemens for use in the new facility, which was opened earlier this month following an official ceremony attended by Siemens representatives.
“Siemens Healthcare has provided Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital with an Artis zee ceiling-mounted system for use in its new interventional radiology theatre.“
Benefits of Artis zee include its syngo DynaCT, soft-tissue 3D imaging and iGuide live integrated needle guidance applications, which make it easy to plot direct pathways to organs for biopsies and drainages with increased speed and accuracy.
Meanwhile, its advanced software capabilities provide the ability to merge previous CT and MR scans with live images in real time, making it possible to generate 3D X-ray data sets.
Paul Vaughan, regional sales manager at Siemens Healthcare, said: "The Artis zee's large flat detector affords easy patient access and full body coverage, with the system's dual functionality combining angiography and cardiology together within one solution."
Earlier this month, the company also provided life science company iGene with six Somatom Definition AS CT systems to help it create a network of digital autopsy centres across England and Wales.See all the latest jobs in Medical Devices
