Today’s surgery departments face complex challenges. Health economic demands, advances in medicine and research, and intense competition often prompt investments in minimally invasive operating techniques and a supporting Hybrid OR. Over a thousand installations worldwide show that ARTIS pheno can be a critical success factor in this endeavor.

As a unique robotic C-arm, ARTIS pheno helps you transform care delivery by adding great versatility to the Hybrid OR. Ready to help you perform both standard and the most difficult approaches, ARTIS pheno accommodates highly diverse procedures, disciplines, or patient positions.

Advance your case mix

A Hybrid OR must deliver

Between the poles of market demands and given budgets, effective resource management is key. A Hybrid OR must accommodate a multitude of procedures and individual patient conditions. At the same time, it must support the needs of surgeons performing in various disciplines and fulfill the hospital’s current and future requirements.

Great versatility for the Hybrid OR

ARTIS pheno offers robotic technology that supports a broad range of procedural needs and patient conditions. Its multidisciplinary surgical capabilities allow minimally invasive treatment across specialties – on one system, in one room. Healthcare institutions can use it for optimizing their case mix, maximum room utilization, and support for upcoming tasks.

Intraoperative 3D verification of electrode placement during deep brain stimulation procedure

Ready for deep brain stimulation

ARTIS pheno allows surgeons to focus on optimal electrode placement. The system delivers intra-operative imaging to support targeting of the brain structures, stereotactic navigation, as well as assessment of electrode placement – eliminating the need for transporting the patient to the radiology department for a postoperative CT scan.

Intraoperative 3D verification of screw positioning

Ready for iliosacral screw fixation

ARTIS pheno supports surgeons to perform precise iliosacral joint fixation. The system permits planning of the screw pathway using intra-operative 3D images and provides live 2D fluoroscopy guidance. The final control of the results with syngo DynaCT takes only a few seconds.

Intraoperative 3D verification of implant positioning during minimally invasive spinal fusion procedure

Ready for spinal fusion

ARTIS pheno supports optimal pedicle screw placement. The system provides support throughout the spinal fusion procedure, from fast large volume 3D scans (approximately 10 vertebrae) up to individualized screw path planning, guidance, and immediate assessment of implant positioning.

Stereotactic radiofrequency ablation

Ready for stereotactic radiofrequency ablation

ARTIS pheno offers 3D planning and guidance for ablation procedures. A study has shown the feasibility of multi-probe ablation of tumors larger than 3 cm1. Intraprocedural imaging permits assessment of ablation within the tumor margins.
Stent deployment with fusion imaging

Ready for EVAR

ARTIS pheno with procedural intelligence helps standardize – and potentially speed up – EVAR procedures. This is possible thanks to assisted preparation of the CT dataset, simplified image acquisition, guided stent deployment with 3D imaging, and immediate assessment of results.

Aortic valve deployment with fusion imaging

Ready for TAVI

ARTIS pheno with procedural intelligence helps standardize TAVI procedures by simplifying image acquisition, automating planning, guiding valve deployment, and enabling prompt verification. Studies2 show that TAVI with syngo DynaCT and syngo Aortic Valve Guidance could potentially improve the implantation quality and reduce the paravalvular regurgitation compared to procedures without intraoperative 3D guidance. Other studies3 show that implantation quality is related to survival of patients.

Image-guided needle path planning

Ready for iVATS

ARTIS pheno helps standardize iVATS procedures by simplifying acquisition and improving needle path planning and localization. Patients can remain in the Hybrid OR throughout the procedure, so you can potentially reduce their time-at-risk by up to 94%4 compared to a two session, two room approach for lesion marking and resection.

Optimize clinical operations

Inefficiencies can be costly

Time-consuming manual workflows, heterogeneous image quality, unwanted variations in procedural outcomes, and staff training needs are obstacles to treatment in the Hybrid OR. From a resource management perspective, unnecessary tasks or workflow steps can lead to unnecessary expenditures and lost productivity.

Standardized image-guided surgery

ARTIS pheno with procedural intelligence eliminates repetitive input steps or manual adjustment of settings. It enables simplified image-guided surgery and consistent workflows. ARTIS pheno offers intra-operative support, intelligent optimization of image quality in support of ALARA dose, and automated C-arm positioning – so that users may focus on the patient rather than on the imaging system.

Maintain infection control

Keeping hospital environments clean is crucial

Proper infection control is key for the safety of patients and staff in your hospital. It can be hard to keep up with the vast number of pathogens, however.

Comply with infection control standards

ARTIS pheno helps you be at the forefront of this important topic. The imaging system features internal cable guidance and seamless, spill-sealed covers with evenly smooth surfaces, making it easy to clean. In addition its painting has significant antimicrobial effect on non-sporulating bacteria. This way, ARTIS pheno can help you strive to maintain high infection control standards.
