Why is Bi-plane, and is it essential for neuro intervention

Unlike abdominal organs and heart the blood vessels of brain have tortuous anatomy and their course inside the skull is 3 dimensional. It is imperative that to understand the diseases and anatomical abnormalities of these blood vessels we need to have three dimensional imaging systems while doing angiographic interventions.

This 3 D understanding of the neuro vascular diseases is provided by simultaneous projections from 2 C arm fluoroscopic images placed perpendicular to each other. Bi-plane technology is the standard of care for modern neuro-interventions. It enables doctors to perform complex procedures with more precision and less risk.


Whether treating an aneurysm, embolizing an arteriovenous malformation, or performing a thrombectomy, bi-plane technology offers neuro-interventionalists an invaluable tool that has improved patient outcomes with effective and safe endovascular navigation guidance technique.

In addition with a biplane system, medical professionals can simultaneously capture images from multiple angles. This saves time during patient positioning, making for a more efficient and ergonomic system. Unlike single-plane systems, biplane setups require less radio-opaque dye, reducing the risk of complications due to dye usage.
