Interventional X-ray systems are used to acquire 2D and 3D images of complex anatomical structures (e.g. the cardiovascular system). These images provide a clinician with feedback in a medical procedure, which enables advanced minimally invasive treatments. Hereby, they have become an indispensable tool in many clinical disciplines. However, architectural innovations over past decades have been limited, while developments in imaging equipment, software, and medical treatments were not. This leaves a desire for an improved mechatronic architecture, that better balances performance, clinical usability, and cost. Three novel designs are presented, aimed at improving the interventional X-ray system on multiple, application-specific levels.
