Multipurpose angiography system
Highly precise C-arm for fast and safe examinations
January 24, 2012
Shimadzu Medical Systems has released the new multipurpose system BRANSIST alexa. It is available in two versions: the ceiling-mounted system C12 and the floor-mounted system F12. BRANSIST alexa meets all clinical requirements and also supports catheterization procedures via the radial or brachial approach. The new flat panel detector (FPD) with a field-of-view measuring 30 x 30 cm supports interventions on the entire body – no matter whether cardiological, neuroradiological or peripheral vascular examinations are required. BRANSIST alexa can be conveniently controlled – and represents the extended arm of the operator. Users appreciate the image processing in real-time and the excellent image quality while the patients are exposed to a lower X-ray dose.
Highly precise C-arm for fast, safe examinations
The C-arm of the BRANSIST alexa can be intuitively controlled and quickly positioned. The six-axes triple-pivot construction offers extraordinarily wide body coverage. The C-arm can be positioned at a speed of up to 25 degrees per second and thus contributes to reducing examination time.
