What’s the annual growth rate for image-guided minimally invasive therapies?
Our solution for image-guided minimally invasive therapy
The ARTIS icono family is designed to help you realize the potential for growth by enabling you to offer a wide procedure mix in a single interventional suite. Its state-of-the-art technology will keep you at the top of your game for years to come. This is what we mean by an icon of innovation.
Explore how ARTIS icono supports you in your daily work
Whether for interventional neuroradiology, cardiovascular care, interventional radiology or interventional surgery: ARTIS icono is the system for you. Available as a biplane or floor system, it meets both your clinical and business challenges in a fast pacing healthcare world.
Features & Benefits
Cranial bleeding visualization in the interventional suite
The basal part of the brain is always surrounded by massive bony structures which cause artifacts in 3D imaging.
To overcome artifacts from bony structures, a new double oblique trajectory for image acquisition was developed: syngo DynaCT Sine Spin is raising the bar in consistent 3D image quality for whole brain imaging from cranium to basal.

This feature is optionally available
Reduce artifacts even near bony structures – with syngo DynaCT Sine Spin
The basal part of the brain is always surrounded by massive bony structures which causes artifacts in 3D imaging. To overcome artifacts from these structures, a new double oblique trajectory for image acquisition was developed. Its additional cranial/caudal movements reduce cone beam CT artifacts in the basal part of the brain and close to the skull.
Seamless switching between 2D and 3D – with Twin Spin
With Twin Spin, you can now easily switch between 2D and 3D imaging for the first time ever, making 3D preparation faster. There’s no need to park the lateral plane prior to 3D imaging with the floor stand, and AP and lateral isocentering is performed in a single step – without having to move system components.
- Less risk of collisions with equipment in the room, e.g. anesthesia
- Facilitates utilization of syngo DynaCT
- Makes procedures faster
Constant image quality (contrast-to-noise-ratio based) with significant dose reductions
OPTIQ enables constant image quality in support of ALARA1) dose, regardless of procedure, patient size or C-arm angulation. It is using a contrast-driven technique based on automatic parametrization and intelligent, self-adjusting algorithms. With OPTIQ Flavor, image quality is adjusted according to your personal image preferences.
- Proven Siemens Healthineers-unique 5-parameter exposure control automatically adjusts tube parameters to optimize dose efficiency with variable detector entrance dose as an additional parameter.
- SID and collimation settings are automatically considered
- Structure Scout enables material-specific imaging – tuning the X-ray spectrum according to the material and providing dose savings of up to 51% in fluoroscopy and up to 55% in acquisitions while maintaining the same visibility of iodine.2)
Improve lab utilization with ARTIS icono biplane
ARTIS icono biplane makes different disciplines feel at home in the same interventional suite: Body interventionalists will appreciate full body coverage with the lateral plane for 2D and 3D abdominal imaging without having to reposition the patient. When interventional cardiologists share the lab with neuroradiologists, you can be sure that ARTIS icono biplane easily adapts to their different needs: All it takes is one press of a button – and the lateral plane changes from a radiological to a cardiological preferred setting in just 90 seconds.
Multidisciplinary usage with ARTIS icono floor
ARTIS icono floor is a flexible, multi-axis system that offers ceiling-like flexibility with unparalleled 1.90 m lateral coverage. It offers full tableside integration as well as fully motorized movements of the C-arm to all imaging positions and angulations – supporting both vascular and cardiology interventions. With its small footprint, the system can be easily installed into room as small as 25 m2. All this makes ARTIS icono floor a cost-effective solution to meet the growing need for high versatility in the interventional suite.
Real-time remote monitoring and proactive service to maximize uptime
ARTIS icono comes with the Siemens Healthineers unique Guardian Program. An additional follow-the-sun, 24-hour real-time remote system monitoring service can detect and resolve errors before malfunctions occur – or at least trigger an instant response. Intelligent components lead to a stable service cost situation due to higher reliability.
Stay competitive: train and retain your workforce
Faster workflows due to procedural intelligence with minimal user interaction: Case Flows are a sequence of system settings to match diagnostic steps and the treatment path. They can be used for standardization across multiple ARTIS icono labs. Furthermore, online training with PEPconnect helps team members get up to speed fast with ARTIS icono.
