For thrombectomy, combined models such as Miyabi Angio-CT1 can be used. This involves a combination of an Artis angiography system (as the Artis Q biplane system in the picture) and a Somatom Definition AS/AS+ or a Somatom Definition Edge Sliding Gantry System (in the picture). The CT is mounted on rails and travels to the Artis system table. This makes it possible to perform the intervention immediately after the imaging stage without having to move or transfer the patient once again in between these steps. This saves valuable time.
