The Health System is the Second-of-Its-Kind in the U.S. to Acquire This New Technology

(Cape Coral, Fla. – Aug. 24, 2023) --- Lee Health has acquired the Siemens ARTIS Icono Ceiling Angio System, making it the first health system in the Southern United States and the second in the country to have this technology. The system, which is now available at Cape Coral Hospital, gives physicians the ability to perform more complex procedures, helps them provide more specialized and targeted care and improves outcomes for patients.

With the addition of the Siemens ARTIS Icono Ceiling Angio System, Cape Coral Hospital can now perform interventional and vascular procedures, such as interventional oncology procedures, liver-targeted therapies, embolization procedures, and aortic endo leak procedures.

This advanced system provides patients with access to the latest technology for image-guided procedures. It offers 3D images that are rendered faster than any other system, performing more complex procedures while increasing quality care outcomes. It also helps operators navigate complex anatomies more consistently and predictably, which ensures accuracy in device positioning.

The Siemens ARTIS Icono Ceiling Angio System offers movement flexibility and faster rotational speed, resulting in shorter time for 3D images. It also features self-adjusting algorithms that regulate image quality at the lowest possible dose, customizable procedure workflows, and user-friendly tableside controls.

The system's contrast-based exposure control, OPTIQ, enhances visibility of small vessels and devices in 2D imaging. The system is also equipped with Omni Spin, which optimizes flexibility, speed, and precision.

“The acquisition of the Siemens ARTIS Icono Ceiling Angio System is a significant investment that allows Lee Health to continue delivering exceptional care to the Southwest Florida community,” said Eric Vazquez, director of radiology for Cape Coral Hospital. “With this advanced technology, Cape Coral Hospital can now perform more advanced procedures with improved accuracy, more diverse applications, and less radiation exposure, ensuring better outcomes for patients in Cape Coral and Lee County.”
