Editorial I am proud to announce that at this year’s RSNA we will launch our new system, Artis® one®. In the cover story you will read a compelling interview with Prof. Achenbach (University Erlangen-Nuremberg), who explains the essential imaging requirements for interventional cardiology, and provides insight on his expectations for Artis one. This new technology will redefine the way you interact with the system, the way you do interventions, and the resulting positive impact on your organization. As more and more hospitals are interested in increasing the utilization of their labs, the Artis one is designed to support a wide spectrum of procedures, from interventional routine to more complex interventions like TAVI or hybrid procedures; and all of this without compromising our image quality. Another impressive benefit of the Artis one is its surprisingly small footprint, needing a room size of just 25 square meters. This is a big advantage for hospitals with limited space. All in all, the new Artis one system allows a high utilization of the lab, enabling higher reimbursement and increased efficiency. At surgical sites we see a significant trend toward multidisciplinary use in a hybrid lab environment. At the University of Ulm, for example, the Artis zeego® is used by seven different surgical specialties, all with different needs. In this edition you can read more about how the Artis zeego enables flexibility and tailored use for each individual doctor in one room. I am also pleased to share further customer experiences with you, reflecting the high interest in the two new products we introduced just one year ago, the Artis Q® and the Artis Q.zen®.
