Benefits of the Artis Pheno Angio-Suite

Real-Time Monitoring

Medical professionals can monitor the progress of procedures in real time using the system’s live imaging capabilities.

Precision and Accuracy

Large field of view and clarity provides a high degree of precise navigation for neurosurgery, orthopedic, spine, liver, vasculary, cardiac, and thoracic surgeries.

3D Visualization

The system offers large volume 3D imaging capabilities. The rotational aniography allows medical teams to view anatomical structures from multiple angles in high-resolution images.

Off-Site Support

MERI’s Mobile Education Team supports our sponsors anywhere in the continental United States. We can set up labs in convention centers, surgical facilities, or any other area that provides sufficient space, light and power, and within guidelines of local, state, and federal regulations.
