Some neurosurgical disorders are not suitable for surgery and patients with these disorders are left with no option other than intervention. The prohibitive cost of neuro interventions makes this treatment unaffordable even to the middle class family.
Flat panel detector systems give a more discrete image of the anatomy. The introduction of flat panel detectors (FPD)—replacing image intensifiers ensures the highest visibility of vessels from corner to corner, and brings down the radiation dose to the lowest possible levels.
Many centers go in for a monoplane cath lab as the cost for a biplane cath lab is also prohibitive. Because bi-plane systems capture image data from detectors on two axes, they are able to show 3D images in real time. As it is especially useful in neurovascular and pediatric cardiac procedures the team of specialists in Neurosurgery, Cardiology & Radiology opted for a Biplane Cath Lab.
Keeping in mind, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s vision of providing high tech/best medical care free of cost to one & all, the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust procured a flat panel Biplane Cath Lab.
The Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences, Whitefield now has a Biplane cathlab that caters to the needs of both Cardiology & Neurosurgery. The Siemens Artis Zee Biplane Cathlab with a 56” LCD display has being commissioned. This will augment the services of Cardiology, Neurosurgery & Interventional Neuroradiology.
The Siemens Artis Zee Biplane Cath Lab has the following features:
syngo DynaCT offers the major advantage of immediate detection or exclusion of intracranial complication without patient transfer. For Cardiac, it is especially suited for the planning, performance and follow-up of interventions through display of 3D morphology directly in the cathlab
Syngo neuro aneurysm – is used for planning of virtual stenting in management of intracranial aneurysms
Syngo iguide: provides live and integrated needle guidance for interventional procedures and enables easy planning and navigation.
syngo Inspace 3D/3D fusion allows fusion of morphological and functional information from different modalities like CT and MRI enhancing visualization of pathology
Clear Stent: Enables improved display of stents for better deployment.
