Siemens releases new AXIOM Artis dBC Magnetic Navigation System
Siemens Medical Solutions has introduced the AXIOM Artis dBC Magnetic Navigation System, designed to increase the ease and accuracy of catheter-based procedures in efficiency and productivity. The new technology features a biplane configuration, which can be used as either a biplane angiography C-arm system or as a magnetic navigation system, Siemens said.
The system is built on Siemens' AXIOM Artis dBC, a flat detector, biplane angiography system for diagnostic and therapeutic cardiac interventions, as well as AXIOM Artis dFC Magnetic Navigation System, which helps improve navigation of catheter- and guidewire-based devices along paths within the heart and coronary vasculature that are difficult to navigate, Siemens said.
