With ArtemisTM by Eigen, Siemens Accessories Solutions offers a comprehensive and proven system for integrating reliable multiparametric MRI information into TRUS-guided prostate biopsies.

The key elements for a successful clinical integration of multiparametric MR information into TRUS-assisted prostate biopsies are:

  • Ease of use
  • Standardized integration of multiparametric MRI information
  • Suitability for transrectal and perineal procedures

The ArtemisTM comprises three system components that support the streamlined and efficient workflow needed to integrate multiparametric MRI into TRUS-guided prostate biopsies. With a reported total intervention time of approximately 20 minutes2 it has a clear advantage in terms of intervention compared to targeted prostate biopsies performed under direct MRI guidance.3

ArtemisTM – Three System Components for Diagnostic Confidence

Pro FuseTM

Definition of region of interest for interventions based on multiparametric MRI with a comprehensive planning tool

  • Available where needed e.g. in the radiology reading room, at a separate workplace, during an intervention
  • Easy communication of intervention planning data to the ArtemisTM biopsy system

ProFuse BXTM

Integration of MR data into TRUS assisted biopsy

  • Quick and easy
  • Takes endorectal coils, bladder filling, and patient position into account


Semi-automated TRUS-guided prostate biopsy

  • 3D navigation and real-time control
  • Accelerates biopsy procedures
  • Detailed reporting and management of pathology and clinical history
