Siemens Medical Solutions introduced the Axiom Artis dBC, a biplane cardiac and angiography system at the Pediatric Interventional Cardiac Symposium in Orlando, Sept. 22 to 24. The Artis dBC is equipped with a digital flat-panel detector in each of two planes. The 25-cm diagonal detectors promise improved image clarity and fewer artifacts, according to the company. They will work in concert with features designed to enhance image quality, provide quantitative measures, or reduce x-ray dose.

Dynamic Density Optimization enables viewing of fine vascular structures distributed over dense areas equally as well as those in less dense areas. Sensis calculates hemodynamic and electrophysiologic data obtained during catheterization. CARE (combined application to reduce exposure) uses copper prefiltration to automatically adjust the filter strength during the exam to the density of the region of interest. The Artis dBC also includes features designed to optimize workflow, such as touchscreen operation and preprogrammed exam positions.
