STILLE imagiQ2 c-arm table – setting new standards for medical equipment
The high-end STILLE imagiQ2™ surgical imaging table, with the only curved carbon fiber top in the world, enhances image quality with up to 60% more translucency compared to all other fluoroscopy tables on the market. Thanks to its smooth curvature on the edges, artifacts that may occur when taking oblique images are eliminated. ImagiQ2™ is designed by prominent surgeons around the world and is a state-of-the-art C-arm complement for the Mobile Hybrid OR when performing endovascular surgery, electrophysiology, urodynamics, gastroenterology, Endotrauma management (REBOA) and neurosurgery. This also includes any other applications that require high quality imaging as well as time saving.
STILLE imagiQ2 – the result of low-dose technology
The STILLE imagiQ2 C-arm table represents an important advance in developing low-dose technology field, making the OR an even safer place for both patients as well as the entire surgical team that is exposed to radiation, week after week.
The imagiQ2 is built on a specially designed curved carbon fiber table top design* that offers significantly reduced radiation attenuation. The table top allows X-ray to pass through with unbeatable transparency, enabling reduced dose levels, eliminating artifacts from flat table top edges, enhancing image quality and increasing safety for both patients and clinicians.
Choose a low-dose enabler
The unique high-performance carbon fiber table top* provides unbeatable transparency of 0.4 mm Al equivalency. That is at least 60% more translucency than the average imaging table top on the market (published aluminum attenuation for table tops on the market). This enables the C-arm to reduce the radiation dose without compromising image quality, all while minimizing C-arm overheating.
More efficient surgical procedure
The True Free Float® technology* of the STILLE imagiQ2 provides unprecedented control and freedom of movement in any desired direction, all while providing state-of-the-art smoothness like an extension of the surgeon’s hand. This results in shorter procedure times and higher efficiency in the OR. The key in all this lies in the tactile feeling that the STILLE imagiQ2 floating table offers the surgeon compared to a motorized driven table (maneuvered by joystick or buttons), where one has to rely on “guessing” where the table will move.
The imagiQ2 has proven to be considerably faster than motorized tables, making it the ideal complement for endovascular surgery. Surgeons around the world report savings of up to 40 min during a typical peripheral and AAA cases as well as some neurosurgery procedures where precision is the key to be able to save time, which otherwise is difficult to achieve with a motorized table.
STILLE has the longest published longitudinal and diagonal float for mobile tables, representing a pivotal tool for vascular surgeons when performing a bolus chase during a peripheral artery disease procedure.
Optimized C-arm capabilities – enhanced image quality
With its ultra-slim design and super-low base with retractable wheels, the imagiQ2 enhances the C-arm access making it the ideal C-arm complement for the mobile Hybrid OR or office suite. The wheels will enter the base of the table, making it rest on the floor on its own weight. This brings the table base down (instead of up like other tables), allowing the C-arm to come closer to the patient, thus enhancing image quality and reducing radiation exposure.
The retractable wheels of the STILLE imagiQ2 surgical imaging table also provide complete stability during open surgery as well as CPR massage. This gives the impression of having both a mobile and a fixed table all in one. Some tables on the market have small metal pins that lift the wheels from the floor, offering only 4 small thin legs as stability point during open surgery or CPR, which in its turn will affect the surgeons’ focus due to table movement.
Continuous image focus
The patented technology of the “ISO ROLL ® cradling motion” (±15°) helps maintain image focus even while in full lateral roll, minimizing patient and C-arm repositioning. It has been proved that this feature helps reducing considerably scattered radiation exposure when the table is rolled to acquire images instead of moving the C-arm.
