BIPLANE

Biplane

Interventional Angiography System

 

In biplane imaging, two x-ray cameras simultaneously capture images of blood vessels from two different angles. As the cameras move up and down, front to back and side to side, they provide high-resolution images that enable 3D visualization of even the smallest details of any area in the body. This helps speed up the diagnosis of a wide range of conditions, from neurovascular diseases to benign or cancerous tumor of the liver to abdominal hemorrhage to deep vein thrombosis (blood clot in one of the veins in the leg).

 

Biplane imaging allows doctors to see where to place an instrument to close a ruptured vessel or open up a clogged one. In a clot retrieval procedure, the device helps doctors to see small blood vessels more clearly and quickly reach the target location. With the ability to instantly zoom in and out on images on the touchscreen display, a doctor can accurately assess where to place the clot retrieval instrument.

 

“Innovative imaging system shows blood vessel locations, allowing accurate instrument placement to close or open up a blood vessel.”

Highlights

 

  • Biplane angiography helps reduce contrast medium volume and side effects by half because only one injection is required rather than two.
  • 3D display system allows doctors to see even small blood vessels at 2k resolution, enhancing diagnostic confidence and procedural efficiency.
  • Real-time omni-directional imaging enables a quick diagnosis, which is especially critical in case of a stroke or cardiovascular event.

Suitability

 

  • Suitable for patients with neurovascular conditions such as an ischemic stroke, ruptured aneurysm, or embolic stroke.
  • Suitable for patients who present with symptoms of a clogged or narrowing blood vessel, or bleeding in the abdominal cavity or another organ (such as a leg or an arm).
  • Suitable for patients with a benign or cancerous tumor of the liver.

The system comprises two C-Arm x-ray machines and is powered by a special software. The real-time 3D imaging works like a torchlight guiding doctors and allowing them to accurately assess where in the blood vessel is the abnormality located. This ability to see the smallest details in various organs of the body helps in the placement of interventional instruments. The biplane system enables accurate performance of clot retrieval procedures to remove blood clots and stent placement to open an artery or vein to allow blood to flow once again.

 

In these procedures, the patient is given general anaesthesia. Doctors then perform steps to insert the appropriate device to correct the patient’s condition. Using the biplane system helps to reduce procedure time as well as recovery time, allowing the patient to return to work or living normally in just a few days. Because it works efficiently, this innovative system helps increase treatment safety.
