One Year into a New Vision “The difference in image quality is immediately visible to the naked eye” Prof. Martin Skalej, MD about Artis Q Magdeburg, Germany “With the new system, we feel far more confident in many interventions that we perform” Prof. Frank Wacker, MD about Artis Q Hannover, Germany News One year on from the launch of Siemens’ new vision for interventional imaging, the Artis Q and the Artis Q.zen have firmly established themselves across the globe with more than 150 orders and 50 installations; from Japan in the Far East, to the USA in the West. From down under in Australia, to India in South Asia, and throughout Europe in the northern hemisphere. The greatest measure for the success of the Artis Q and the Artis Q.zen has been the empowerment of interventional physicians around the world, eliciting responses such as those shown on the left. The Artis Q and Artis Q.zen go way beyond incremental improvements in image processing. The most powerful interventional X-ray tube ever produced by Siemens, combined with the actively cooled 16-bit detector technology, is redefining what the performance and image quality of an interventional system should be. Increasing the visibility of small structures by up to 70%*, even in obese patients and at steep angles, and reducing radiation dose by up to 60%*, the Artis Q is exceeding all expectations. The unique crystalline silicone technology within the Artis Q.zen detector has redefined the discussion on dose from low to ultra-low dose and is already clinically proven in electrophysiology. Read more about our customers’ first experiences with the Artis Q and the Artis Q.zen on the following pages. * Compared to previous X-ray tube technology. Siemens data on file.
