Timely and optimal stroke treatment is crucial
In stroke management, latest studies1) opened the time window for mechanical thrombectomy to 24 hours. This improves stroke treatment for a larger part of the 15 million people suffering a stroke each year.2) For you, however, it means that stroke care turns into a double challenge: Besides having to treat each stroke patient as fast as possible, you also have to be ready to treat more patients.
From stroke to soccer in just one week
See how precision imaging with optimal image quality and sharp images of small moving objects, coupled with an optimally adapted in-hospital stroke workflow allowed a young stroke sufferer to go on as if nothing had happened.

Perform stroke care in the fast lane
Stroke patients need medical help extremely fast. Advance therapy outcomes with our groundbreaking angio‐only solution ARTIS icono. The system delivers faster, more precise cone-beam CT images. And by combining pre-procedural imaging and treatment in your angio suite for stroke patients, you can save up to one hour in stroke care.4)
- Transfer potential LVO stroke patients directly to the angio suite
- With syngo DynaCT Multiphase it is for the first time possible to visualize cerebral collateral vessels with time resolved DynaCT, depicting 10 different time points within a period of 60 seconds
- Bleeding visualization and stroke classification can be done right in the angio suite
- Perform both diagnostic imaging and stroke treatment with one system
Did you know?
- With syngo DynaCT Sine Spin5), artefacts in the skull base are reduced, to visualize bleedings in the whole brain
- According to peers at Göttingen, the angio-only solution leads to a door-to-groin time reduction of approximately 30 minutes: Find out more at onestopinstroke.eu
The University Medical Center Goettingen in Germany significantly reduced door‐to‐groin time.
For the angio‐only solution in stroke treatment, Goettingen chose patients with an NIHSS ≥ 7.
First, 20‐second native syngo DynaCT images were acquired to confidently rule out hemorrhage
Next, two 10‐second biphasic syngo DynaCT images were acquired that clearly show the vessels
“Among patients with acute ischemic stroke with a proximal vessel occlusion, a small infarct core, and moderate-to-good collateral circulation, rapid endovascular treatment improved functional outcomes and reduced mortality.” (from the publication)6)
The DAWN trial shows that time alone shouldn’t be a disqualifier for endovascular thrombectomy. For example: 48.6% of patients in the thrombectomy group experienced less disability, compared to 13% in the control group who received standard medical care.7)
DEFUSE 3 shows favorable outcomes for late-window patients. For example: Mortality rate was 14% in the endovascular-therapy group, compared to 26% in the medical-therapy group. There was no significant between-group difference regarding adverse events.8)
nexaris Angio-CT suite
Save time with a 2-in-1 stroke solution
Reducing door-to-groin time for stroke patients at your institution is critical. Optimize clinical processes and perform CT diagnostics and angio stroke treatment in the same room. In our nexaris Angio-CT suite, patients can even stay on the same table for diagnostics and treatment – translating into time savings and enhanced safety. In a two-room set-up, you can even use the systems independently.
- Unique system combination that shares one table for diagnostics and treatment, making patient transfer unnecessary
- Optimized, faster, and easier stroke management that supports enhanced patient outcomes
- Potential cost savings thanks to reduced workflow time and improved neurological outcomes
- High‐end care for centers of excellence
Did you know?
- You can dramatically reduce time to reperfusion in the endovascular treatment of acute stroke patients by eliminating time spent on transporting and transferring patients
- You can maximize system utilization: The CT and angio system can be used separately for daily business when installed in a two‐room setup with a sliding door in between
- It’s an ideal solution for emergency departments with stroke specialization
nexaris Angio‐CT suite: A smart combination of an Artis Q biplane and a CT scanner in one room to speed up diagnostics and interventional stroke treatment.
Our SOMATOM CT scanners offer:
•Adaptive 4D coverage
•CT gantry slides back and forth over the rails to extend 4D coverage beyond detector width
•Flexible room concepts
Our Artis Q biplane system offers:
•Same image resolution on both planes thanks to same detector size and two equally powerful tubes
•Live pixel shift during DSA and roadmap for movement compensation
•Broad spectrum of roadmap features for device guidance
Fast, dedicated stroke imaging and stroke treatment in one room

Mobile stroke unit
Start acute stroke care at the earliest possible
In stroke care, it’s crucial to differentiate ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke at the earliest possible stage. With our solutions for mobile stroke units, you can transform care delivery by ruling out bleeding in the ambulance, initiating ivTPA for ischemic stroke on the way to the hospital, and triaging patients to the appropriate clinical institution faster.
- Industry-leading comprehensive solution that is taking standard of care for stroke to the streets
- Reach, diagnose, and treat potential stroke patients faster by bringing the CT scanner to the patient at the point of care, without compromising clinical results

Images can be sent to the hospital before the ambulance arrives, which helps determine the optimal treatment method early on
