Neurological Sciences - Angiograph Suite

The neuroangiography suite holds a bi-plane, digital imaging unit called the "Artis Axiom", manufactured by Siemens. It is used for diagnostic and interventional procedures to image the brain and spine, focusing on the circulation. We generally are looking for pathologies such as aneurysms, AVM's, tumours and other stroke-causing, atherosclerotic disease. We are able to acquire images that are sharper and more defined than ever before, changing parameters and positions with greater ease than in the past.

With the "Leonardo Workstation" we can produce 3D images of blood vessels and isolate areas of interest. Improved visualization allows us to treat these pathologies more confidently.
