Nuffield Leeds deploys interventional imaging system

Artis zee technology centrepiece of new angiography suite

Nuffield Health Leeds Hospital has installed a ceiling-mounted Artis zee interventional imaging system to enhance its angiography services.

The deployment of the technology, supplied by Siemens Healthcare, has enabled the hospital to expand its service to handle a mixed workload of neuro vascular, cardiac and vascular interventional procedures.

Equipped with a large flat detector, the system enables full body coverage and easy patient access. It has an adaptable architecture and is capable of delivering clinical applications for performing both fluoroscopy and angiography examinations.

“We selected the Artis zee for our new interventional angiography suite because we wanted an imaging solution that was versatile,” said Andrew Pimperton, radiology manager at the hospital. “It has greatly increased the variety of procedures we are able to undertake and the images delivered are very clear. We are very excited about delivering new patient-orientated services and expanding our interventional imaging capabilities.”
