BRANSIST alexa F12/C12 MiX package

Crossover digital angiography system

BRANSIST alexa incorporates Shimadzu’s entire technical expertise to provide the solution  for a wide range of applications. It features a flat panel detector (FPD) with a field of view able to cover the entire body to support cardiovascular and angiographic procedures.

Due to the new software and hardware, the new MiX package for the BRANSIST alexa angiography system provides a more advanced and powerful solution supporting even less invasive procedures.

BRANSIST alexa C12 MiX package: ceiling-mounted type


True Multipurpose System Supports Interventions

A 12x12-inch field size FPD, a special SCORE PRO Advance high-speed image processing engine for interventions, cardiac function analysis software, real-time DSA  and roadmapping are provided as standard.

Optimal 12x12-Inch FPD for Multipurpose Applications

The field size can be changed in five steps, to a maximum of 12x12 inches. The 4.5-inch minimum field size supports cardiovascular and neuro-interventions.




SCORE Imaging: Experience the Next Frontier of Intervention

The next generation image processing engine SCORE PRO Advance, the extremely motion-tolerant DSA technique SCORE RSM, the stent enhancement software SCORE StentView +Plus and advanced 3D applications ensure powerful support for advanced interventions.


SCORE PRO Advance provides high-quality radiographic and fluoroscopic images with a lower dose. Above all, the new motion-tracking noise reduction technology reduces noise and allows sufficient visibility of the tip of the guide wire and catheter. 



SCORE RSM is an extremely motion-tolerant DSA technique. This application is especially effective for tracking across the entire lower extremities, 3D imaging in combination with C-arm movement and examinations on patients who have difficulties holding their breath.


SCORE StentView +Plus* 

SCORE StentView+Plus is a software developed specifically to support PCI procedures based on real-time image processing technology, a specialty of Shimadzu. Stents move with the pulse beat. However, SCORE StentView+Plus displays stents in a fixed position, not through post-processing, but rather in real-time. This is particularly effective for assessing positional relationships between overlapping stents, or when re-expanding a stent using a balloon.

As a new feature, a function for specifying the region of interest (ROI) has become available. It allows multiple markers to be used for automatic detection, rather than two markers as in previous versions, contributing to higher detection efficiency and shorter examination times. 






SCORE MAP includes the new TraceMAP function. TraceMAP creates an overlay image on fluoroscopy by automatically tracing the contours of vessels from the DSA image. This enables the quick and easy recognition of bifurcation and control devices in various vascular interventions such as EVT etc. TraceMAP is easy to operate, automatically tracing the contours of vessels from the DSA image and overlaying these on the fluoroscopic image. In addition, manually drawn lines or guides can be used to provide further flexibility.




SCORE 3D application allows the rapid display of the 3D reconstructed images automatically after rotational radiography. With a top rotational image acquisition speed of 60 degrees per second, the shorter contrast medium injection time reduces the burden on patients and ensures high image quality.


SCORE CT is an application for observing cross-sectional images of low contrast regions. The application has 2 use modes depending on the procedure and radiographic region of interest. Axial, coronal, and sagittal images are displayed automatically after radiography.


The BRANSIST alexa MiX package increases the image processing gray scale from 14-bit to 16-bit, significantly improving the image quality for SCORE CT where low-contrast resolution is of particular importance.



SCORE Navi/Navi+Plus*

SCORE Navi/Navi+Plus is an application utilizing preprocedure images to support minimally invasive interventions. By synchronizing the C-arm projections to pre-procedure MDCT images, the system enables these MDCT images to be used as a reference during interventions, reducing contrast media usage and X-ray dose. Registration of the MDCT images and the fluoroscopy images is easily achieved by performing fluoroscopy in 2 directions and the system will perform automatic alignment. The software can also overlay images onto fluoroscopy, which allows you to adjust the rate of blending. The Navi+Plus application also includes a virtual stent feature that allows you to simulate the stent size and placement position before carrying out a procedure.



SMART Design: Changing the way. Making it possible

SMART Access

Both the ceiling-mounted C-arm (type C12) and floor-mounted C-arm (type F12) provide a wide range of movement. In detail this means that with a floor-mounted C-arm, the base has a six-axis triple-pivot construction achieving a range of coverage close to that of the ceiling-mounted type.



F12 Six-Axis Triple-Pivot Construction for Full-Body Coverage

A total of six axes are provided for the base and rotational axes of the floor-mounted C-arm, achieving wide coverage. In particular, the triple-pivot construction of the base allows freely adjustable arm positioning.


C12 Wide Coverage Reduces the Burden on Patients

The Ceiling-mounted C-arm is capable of full-body coverage without moving the patient, thanks to a wide 210 cm coverage in the transverse direction and 190 cm in the longitudinal direction. Movement in the transverse direction, in particular, supports a safe radial catheterization approach.


SMART Assist 

The lever-type C-Arm Controller CyberConsole and DirectMemory for quick C-Arm positioning provide single-action performance to make system control in the examination room and control room as simple as possible.



SMILE Concept: Safety + Comfort = SMILE

SMILE Dose-eye

SMILE Dose-eye achieves an excellent system-wide tradeoff balance between lower dosage and higher image quality.



SMILE Recovery

High speed setup, data mirroring for redundant data architecture and backup filament for X-ray tube benefit both patients and operators.
