Read the latest customer success story on "Pioneering Stroke Evaluation and Treatment by Combining MR with Angio". The case study details the partnership between UCSF (University of California, San Francisco) and Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital. It focuses on the benefits of combining Angiography with Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in ischemic stroke evaluation, therapy, and management.
Minimally invasive procedures that employ intraoperative imaging can reduce risk and lower complication rates, potentially resulting in better patient outcomes and cost efficiency. What could you gain in treatment innovation by having seamless access to every imaging modality in your operating room?
Our new nexaris Angio-MR-CT solution allows you to seamlessly combine ARTIS Angiography, MAGNETOM MRI, and SOMATOM CT in one environment for valuable image information during any stage of the procedure. And, thanks to the PILOT patient transfer system, developed with our partner Getinge, switching between the surgical table and imaging modalities requires no patient repositioning.
- Experience seamless access
- Drive treatment innovation
- Team-up with an experienced partner
