The Hybrid Theatre

Opportunities for surgical research and training

The Hybrid Theatre expands research and training capability in interventional cardiology, neurosurgery, cardiothoracic surgery, laparoscopic surgery, cancer treatment planning and any area where visualisation of devices or contrast is valuable.

Siemens Artis Pheno C-Arm

An all-in-one solution for interventional radiology and surgery and the first instrument of its type in Australia, the Artis Pheno at Sydney Imaging offers exceptional imaging quality in a wide range of clinical cases. It is designed to broaden clinical capabilities and expand patient access while combating patient infection. The robot-supported angiography system was developed for use in minimally invasive surgery, interventional radiology and interventional cardiology.

Additional licence software features:

Syngo iFlow: provides the visualization of a complete Digital Subtraction Angiography (DSA) run in a color-coded single image providing clinicians the ability to evaluate the inflow and outflow of contrast in dedicated pixels or in regions of interest.

Syngo Needle guidance:  enables precise needle positioning with integrated live feature that clearly displays the length and angulation of the needle path and automatically positions the C-arm to plan the needle path.

CaaS vFFR (late 2023): non-invasive angiographic method used to assess coronary physiology and calculate fractional flow reserve (FFR) values.

Our Siemens SC2000 ACUSON provides real-time, high-quality images and quantification for ultrasound and echocardiography, including Trans-Oesophageal Echocardiography (TOE) and Trans-Thoraic Echocardiography (TTE). Additionally, Intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) catheters (4D volume Acuson AcuNav) catheter provides real-time 3D and 4D volume imaging.
