Needle-guidance is simple with cross-hair laser

At Kingston Hospital are interventional sister Lucy Miller, radiology staff nurse Brent Sewlal, superintendent radiographer Amanda Kenevin, lead consultant interventional radiologist Dr Michael Lynch and Siemens Healthcare regional sales manager Malcolm Pickering.

Kingston Hospital, Surrey, has installed an Artis zee multi-purpose interventional imaging system from Siemens Healthcare.  The system is located in the radiology department and replaces an existing Siemens system which the hospital had been using for 15 years.  It is being used for barium examinations, paediatrics, MSK and general fluoroscopy procedures.

“This is the second Artis zee MP, in the hospital, which is testament to the system’s capabilities,” said superintendent radiographer Amanda Kenevin.  “Main benefits have been the brilliant dose reduction, excellent picture quality and fantastic post processing capabilities where the platforms are not only quick but are also intuitive.   Radiologists and radiographers have commented on the system’s flexibility, which simultaneously allows us to see patients more quickly and run with a wider range of services.”
