This article was originally published in Clinica
Philips Medical Systems has introduced a new interventional tool that enables its Integris V family of angiography systems to be used to visualise extremely small neurovascular details in three dimensions. The Integris 3D RA option combines existing rotational angiography with modified CT reconstruction algorithms, allowing the first reconstruction to be made in approximately six minutes. Further reconstructions take between 20 seconds and 10 minutes, depending on their complexity. The device also reduces the doses of X-rays and contrast media needed to help the physician decide the best treatment strategy, Philips says.
