The aging population and value-based reimbursement have raised demand for minimally invasive procedures that enhance both patient care and cost efficiency. This calls for new solutions in Interventional Radiology.
Nexaris Angio-CT is a hybrid interventional suite with Instant Fusion that seamlessly integrates angio and CT images. Even wireless ultrasound images can be displayed side-by-side on the large display so that Angio, CT and ultrasound images are available at a single glance. This enables you to perform challenging multi-modality procedures and streamline workflows with the piece of mind every pioneer needs.

Features & Benefits
Flexible room design
Two teams share one CT in multi-room configurations
Multi-room options let you share equipment between rooms, so that these can host a wider variety of disciplines. This may be more cost-efficient and can even improve ROI.
- Park the CT and angio when they're not in use for better access to the patient
- Patient-centric design means the system comes to the patient, not the other way round
- Flexible two-room configuration adapts to your clinical, operational and financial goals
Powered by a common coordinate system, CT and angiography images are now seamlessly integrated and instantly fused together. The stunning result is Instant Fusion - providing you with crystal clear overlays and road maps at your finger tips.
- Quick Switching facilitates combined ablations and embolization in one session on one table
- The Artis cockpit lets you control and visualize angio and CT images using one monitor, keyboard and mouse
- Wireless-ultrasound, angio and CT images can be shown side by side on the large display
Explore new procedures, devices and pathways with peace of mind
- Manage bone metastasis in the pelvis or spine with ablation, bone cement and screw fixation
- For blunt poly trauma, locate the bleeding with CT and potentially stabilize it under angio guidance
- Stroke workflow may be improved with CT diagnosis and angio-guided clot retrieval in one room
Assess treatment response and personalize treatment
- CT-perfusion may help assess intra-procedural therapy response for organs covering up to 16.7 cm
- TwinBeam Dual Energy delivers quantitative iodine maps to to assess iodine uptaking lesions
"We wanted to increase capacity with the same space, the same staff and without additional overhead. Only three months after installing the combined angio-CT we went from 500 to 600 cases per month, increasing capacity by 20 %." 1
Executive Director of Radiology, Iowa Methodist Hospital, Des Moines, Iowa, USA
"Anyone who aims at exploring new clinical pathways in interventional radiology may consider combined CT and angiography." 1
Michael Moche, MD, PhD
Head of Interventional Radiology, Helios Park-Klinikum, Leipzig, Germany
"In the setting of blunt trauma, we can immediately diagnose internal bleeding with CT, allowing us to quickly stabilize the patient with angiography and transcatheter embolization – to potentially saves lives." 1
Mark Wilson, MD
Chief of Interventional Radiology, Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, USA
Patient-centric Angio-CT saves trauma patients in Wonkwang University Hospital
An Angio-CT solution allows CT scans and interventional treatment to be performed in one place without the need to transport patients. This combination allows fast diagnosis and treatment and is recognized as a suitable life-saving measure during the “golden hour” which is essential in saving the life of trauma patients.
Jeonbuk Regional Trauma Center at Wonkwang University Hospital is the first facility in Korea to implement an Angio-CT hybrid emergency room to further enhance minimally-invasive treatments for patients.
