Contrast Delivery System Enhances Cost Efficiencies


October 18, 2007

October 18, 2007 - Combining all of the features of the ACIST CMS and Voyager systems onto one platform, the ACIST CVi Contrast Delivery System for cardiovascular angiographic procedures enhances the ease of contrast and saline injection for physicians, nurses and technicians.

The ACIST CVi Contrast Delivery System, which will be featured at TCT 2007, serves as one injection system for all cardiac and vascular angiography procedures. Its fourth-generation technology reportedly means ease of use for staff while obtaining images with less contrast used and delivered to the patient.

According to manufacturer, the ACIST CVi delivers up to 28 percent less contrast dosage to the patient than manual delivery methods of hand-held manifolds and fixed-rate power injectors, resulting in up to a 40 percent savings on reduction of contrast use.

Synchronization capabilities are part of this integrated system, further enhancing the flexible platform. The lower-profile, table-mountable injector and extendable control panel can be placed where it is needed most and with less interference.
