Clinical Fellowships

Fellowships

Learn from medical experts in their fields about the latest developments in clinical innovations and applications. Our Visiting Fellowship Program enables you to see our devices in clinical operation, to discuss their usage with colleagues in the “guest hospital”, exchange experiences, and develop new contacts. Use this unique opportunity to spend a few days watching patient examinations to obtain a factual impression of potential system usage and clinical workflow. The visit takes place at a hospital with experienced physicians and technologists.
 

Interventional Cardiology

Leopoldina Hospital Schweinfurt

The Leopoldina-Hospital Schweinfurt, uses an AXIOM Artis dBC with AXIOM Sensis XP & Artis zee floor and offers patients state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic cardiac treatment. It is an academic teaching hospital associated with the University of Wuerzburg. The city of Schweinfurt is located close to Erlangen/Forchheim and can be reached by car or train in less then 1 hour.

 

Participants learn how AXIOM Artis dBC with AXIOM Sensis XP is used in interventional cardiology. Since both a single-plane Artis zee floor and a biplane system are available, there is a unique opportunity to explore clinical use and learn the differences between a single-plane vs. a biplane system configuration.
