Clearing up the Control Room: Siemens Introduces a Cockpit for Intervention Rooms

Siemens HealthcareSiemens Healthcare presents the Artis zee Cockpit, a new workplace designed to significantly ease the tasks performed in the control room of radiology and cardiology interventional suites. The new Artis zee Cockpit can be used in combination with all angiography systems of the Artis zee family and is available on the market with immediate effect.

Several screens side by side, each with its own mouse and keyboard. Until now, this has been the norm in the control room of interventional suites, where medical technicians support doctors during procedures and have to rush back and forth between the screens. The new workplace from Siemens gives a much clearer overview, since the Artis zee Cockpit's 30-inch medical-grade monitor can display the content of up to six individual monitors. Images generated by the imaging system, video signals from the registration system and 3D images can now be viewed and processed using just the mouse and keyboard of the Artis zee Cockpit. This means that medical technicians no longer have to switch between workplaces, for example, when taking hemodynamic measurements, retrieving reference images from the database, evaluating intracardiac ECG data or reconstructing 3D images for the intervention.

Artis zee is the product family name of Siemens systems used for interventional radiology and cardiology as well as for surgery and electrophysiology. These systems are available in biplane, multi-axial, ceiling-mounted, floor-mounted, and multi-functional configurations, which means that they can be easily incorporated into any intervention room layout.
