Siemens integrates Maquet OR table into angiography system
19 March 2011
Maquet has announced that Siemens Healthcare will integrate
Maquet’s Magnus operating table in its Artis zeego and Artis zee ceiling
The key benefit of the new solution is its multidisciplinary use of
the hybrid OR, which means it will be usable both for angiographic
imaging and for open procedures where extremely flexible patient
positioning may be required.
The Magnus OR table system from Maquet is fitted with
exchangeable table tops — a fully radiolucent carbon top as well as
a highly flexible, segmented table top. The latter allows surgeons
the most appropriate positioning of the patient for a wide variety
of surgical procedures, including complicated positions, which are
particularly occurring in orthopedics and neurosurgery.
First clinical user tests of this integrated hybrid OR are
planned to start mid 2012, and market introduction is planned for
