The area’s only interventional neuroradiology program has added a state-of-the-art Biplane angiography system to enhance the quality of patient’s experience.
Halifax Health recently added the Artis zee® to the Endovascular and Special Procedures section of the Department of Diagnostic Imaging. The Artis zee® system features a 56-inch medical grade screen that allows multiple inputs and high definition picture, to enhance viewing of imaging results and workflow within the interventional suite. This decreases testing time for the radiology team and the patient. Among practical advantages are the advanced x-ray dose reduction techniques along with 3-dimensional imaging and the ability to virtually perform procedures to insure optimal precision and better outcomes for patients
“The Artis zee® not only enhances aneurysm the abilities of the endovascular surgeon but also enhances the safety of the procedure through advanced processing of the patient data” says Dr. David Turetsky, Interventional Neuroradiologist. The new radiological technology will also upgrade the service provided by the area’s only Comprehensive Stroke Center at Halifax Health. The Artis zee® can also be used for peripheral vascular and nonvascular procedures including kyphoplasty, abdominal aneurysm repair and embolization procedures
Halifax Health’s department of radiology has acquired the bi-plane system to increase efficiency and effectiveness of the interventional radiological services. The Artis zee® will increase diagnostic confidence and reduce procedure times and will enhance procedural outcomes in all facets of interventional radiology. . With stroke being the third leading cause of death in the United States, improving the quality of the area’s only Comprehensive Stroke Center and Interventional Neuroradiology programs is another tangible benefit of the system to enhance the community’s healthcare needs.
