Mentice and Siemens Healthineers Collaborate on Simulation System in the Angiosuite


June 24, 2019—Siemens Healthineers and Mentice AB announced a collaboration to fully integrate Mentice’s Vascular Interventional System Trainer (VIST) virtual patient into Siemens' Artis icono angiography system, making the VIST virtual patient a fully integrated simulation solution for the angiosuite. The global partnership between the two companies will allow interventional radiologists, neuroradiologists, and cardiologists to perform vascular and cardiac interventions on a virtual patient inside the angiosuite.

By integrating the VIST system with the Artis icono system, interventionalists may perform simulated cardiac and vascular procedures by using the Artis icono controls to angulate the C-arm, move the angiography table, use the foot pedals, and review fluoroscopic images on the Artis icono screens while deploying actual medical devices in a radiation-free environment.
