Cios Alpha

See the power with Full View FD in C-arm imaging

Mobile C-Arm system – Cios Alpha – Prof. Lang

"One of the best features of Cios Alpha is that we, as surgeons, can operate it by ourselves during interventions. In particular, we can easily position the C-arm by using the four control buttons on the detector. This eliminates the time-consuming and often inaccurate positioning by staff members who act on the surgeons commands. And the extended table-side control options via the remote touch user interface are, of course, very useful and convenient." 3   

Werner Lang, MD FEBVS, Professor of Surgery
Chief, Department of Vascular Surgery,
University Hospital Erlangen, Germany

 


Vascular Surgery

Mobile C-Arm system – Cios Alpha – Prof. Debus

"The possibility of marking certain areas on the screen is a very important tool that we use very often. Especially in cases where it is of utmost importance to precisely position the device in a certain position. For instance, when we perform a vascular AAA procedure where we position the main body of the stent graft right below the renal arteries, the position must fit perfectly. The big advantage with the software is that we can now mark this anatomy and can see where the renals are and can position the device right there where we want to." 3

University Hospital, Eppendorf, Hamburg, Germany

 

Helping make vascular procedures quicker and simpler

  • Live Graphical Overlay1 – innovative support that makes positioning stent grafts even more precise
  • Recalculation and reuse of peak opacified images – reduction in contrast medium
  • Injector trigger1 – better synchronization of the injection of contrast medium
  • Stenosis quantification1 – better quality control
  • Up to 100% landmarking1 – better orientation in the subtraction image

 


Cardiac Surgery

Mobile C-Arm – Cios Alpha – Univ. Doz. Dr. Bruno Podesser

"I am sure you can do everything with Cios Alpha. So, if your clinic is focusing on cardiac surgery and even if you are thinking about doing TAVI procedures, Cios Alpha is an ideal substitute for a hybrid OR." 3

Attending Surgeon, Department of Cardiac Surgery
Landesklinikum St. Poelten, Austria

 

Outstanding support for cardiac procedures

  • Large 25 kW1 power reserves and rotating anode – provides excellent performance
  • 30 pulses per second fluoro fast imaging rates – for excellent images of the heart
  • 20 cm x 20 cm (8" x 8") flat detector – provides optimal coverage of heart region
  • Live Graphical Overlay1 – innovative support that makes positioning stent grafts even more precise

 


Ortho / Spine / Trauma Surgery

Mobile C-Arm system – Cios Alpha – Prof. Dr. med. Florian Gebhard

"In my opinion, Cios Alpha can be used for any type of trauma and orthopedic surgery because of its features like better image quality, larger field of view, asymmetric and rotatable collimators, motorization and position storage." 3

    

Univ. Prof. Dr. med. Florian Gebhard
Director and Chair Department for Orthopaedic Trauma,
Vice Dean Medical Faculty Ulm University, Germany

  

Outstanding support for ortho, spine and trauma procedures

  • For complex cases such as fractures of the pelvis, as well as for complex spine surgery
  • Outstanding HD image quality – supports fine detail visualization
  • Extended free space – for flexible handling at the OR table
  • Single-touch positioning1 – for fast return to the previously stored projection
  • Up to 25% more coverage2, even during image rotation
