Interventional X-Ray in Oncology
Over the past few years, minimal invasive image-guided oncology interventions have emerged as a complement to invasive approaches. The Alphenix family supports you in delivering the best possible outcome to your patients. Whatever the clinical setting, Alphenix is designed around the concept that not every procedure is the same. The range of C-arm positioners provide coverage from head-to-toe and fingertip-tofingertip.
In the 4D CT setting, the volumetric CT and its applications can boost your Interventional Oncology procedures to a new level of care.
Canon Medical’s Alphenix 4D CT seamlessly integrates the interventional lab and CT scanner for a paradigm shift in interventional workflow. The Angio-CT room helps to expand treatment capabilities and is ideal for a variety of interventional oncology procedures. Capture a complete vessel tree of the liver in a single rotation using the wide area detector CT Aquilion ONE GENESIS Edition, while seamlessly change to the Alphenix Sky+ C-arm for guiding your catheter to the tumor feeding arteries visualized by the Embolization Planning application.
Multi Modality Roadmap
Multi Modality Roadmap enables the overlay of a 3D prepared dataset from 3D Angio, CT or MR on live fluoroscopy in real time to provide additional 3D information of vessel architecture, surrounding anatomy or simple landmarks. Resulting in less use of iodine contrast and reducing procedure times
Multiphase Alpha CT
The Alphenix C-arms have a unique feature of Multi Phase Alpha CT scans. Allowing for conebeam CT scans over multiple phases. Visualizing contrast media corresponding to arterial, venal and capillary blood flow providing valuable insight in identification of for example hepatic tumor feeding vessels.
Dose Tracking System (DTS)
DTS estimates dose delivery to the patient’s skin in real time and displays it on a color-coded map, allowing the physician to choose a different approach during a long procedure avoiding regions where dose thresholds are almost reached.
“ Our use of Interventional Radiology has increased by 400% over the last three years. Our current priority is to develop techniques on thermoablation of tumors of the liver using multi-modality imaging, which combines CT scan, ultrasound and angiography. Nearly 40% of liver tumors are not detect able with ultrasound and 20% cannot be picked up with CT scanning. The combination of these imaging modalities, as well as the ability to mark the tumors endovascularly, has enabled us to perform three times more thermoablation treatments over the last three years with subsequent Interventional follow-up.”
