Siemens' ARTIS pheno robotic C-arm gets FDA nod

by Lauren Dubinsky , Senior Reporter
Siemens Healthineers announced today that it received FDA clearance for its ARTIS pheno robotic angiography C-arm system.

It’s intended to replace the Artis zeego, which was introduced eight years ago.

RaySafe helps you avoid unnecessary radiation

RaySafe solutions are designed to minimize the need for user interaction, bringing unprecedented simplicity & usability to the X-ray room. We're committed to establishing a radiation safety culture wherever technicians & medical staff encounter radiation.



Full-body exams performed with ARTIS pheno are 15 percent faster, and head exams are 68 percent faster than exams performed with Artis zeego. That means less contrast is needed, making it a safer exam for older patients with impaired kidney function.

It is also ideal for pediatric and bariatric patients. A free inner diameter of 37.6 inches allows clinicians to remain beside the pediatric patients, and its multi-tilt table can support patients up to 617 pounds.

The table moves easily, regardless of the angle of the tabletop or the patient’s weight. The system recognizes the position of the tabletop and automatically aligns to it at all times.

Memory positions can be recorded, so the user can move the C-arm out of the operating area quickly and then back to the same position for further imaging. That allows the user to perform a quality check during the procedure.

The system features software applications that help interventionalists perform a wide range of minimally-invasive procedures. CLEARstent Live verifies the position of the stent in real time during implantation.

syngo CTO Guidance automatically segments coronary CT angiograms to help interventionalists better plan the procedure, and also provides guidance during the procedure. syngo DynaCT Cardiac generates a 3-D view of the patient’s beating heart.

syngo Aortic Valve Guidance provides fast and accurate 3-D information on the patient’s aortic root anatomy for transcatheter aortic valve replacement procedures. The syngo Fusion package takes CT, MR or PET/CT that were previously acquired and superimposes them onto live fluoroscopy images.

ARTIS pheno was also designed to mitigate hospital-acquired infections. The C-arm, stand and patient table are coated with an antimicrobial to reduce the spread of bacteria.

The system was first introduced in the U.S. at the RSNA annual meeting in November. It was introduced in Europe at the German Congress for Orthopedics and Trauma Surgery the month prior.
