Simplified stent placement in peripheral interventions

Place markers on live X-ray image

StentMarker allows placing stent positioning lines on the live X-ray image in the examination room. The lines are positioned by a control unit that is placed on the patient table. Using StentMarker, the operator can place superimposed markers on the live X-ray image while contrast media is making the area of interest visible. Once the contrast agent is no longer visible on the live X-ray image, the markers remain on the X-ray image to guide the operator where stents need to be placed.

Safeguarding image quality

The markers are excluded in the images sent to PACS. If a multi-function display is used, StentMarker will be visualized on a separate section of the display as not to replace the live X-ray image. This is to maintain the original diagnostic quality of the X-ray images.

Intended use

StentMarker is suitable for use in interventional radiology such as peripheral interventions in the extremities, abdomen and pelvis, as well as other applications where the X-ray live image is not visualizing a moving organ.

Easy positioning

The markers are moved horizontally and vertically and rotated with the three steering knobs on the control unit.
