At Singleton Hospital, Swansea, with an Artis zee from Siemens Healthcare are radiographers Linda Salmon and Mandy Watkins with Siemens regional sales manager Darren Parker and superintendent radiographer Shaun Davies.
Singleton Hospital in Swansea, part of the Abertwae Bro Morgannwg (ABM) University Health Board, has installed an Artis zee Multipurpose interventional angiography system from Siemens Healthcare.
Situated in the radiology department, it has the capability to support emergency angiographic studies, which may remove the need to transfer sick patients between sites for investigation. The system routinely provides imaging for barium examinations and gastro-intestinal interventional work such as endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatographies.
The Artis zee’s adjustable tableside control enables simple manoeuvrability of the system’s flexible and rotating high speed C-arm. The flat detector provides high contrast resolution to improve accuracy in image-guided procedures at a significantly reduced radiation dose.
“Its image quality and reliability are particularly high,” said superintendent sadiographer Shaun Davies.
