Angiography

Angiography X-ray systems are the center piece of the catheterization lab, interventional lab and hybrid OR. These cath lab imaging systems offer a fluoroscopic X-ray view of the anatomy in the form or an angiogram image to guide diagnostic and interventional procedures.

An example of Philips’ TrueVue technology, which offers photo-realistic rendering and the ability to change the location of the lighting source on 3-D ultrasound images. In this example of two Amplazer transcatheter septal occluder devices in the heart, the operator demonstrating the product was able to push the lighting source behind the devices into the other chamber of the heart. This illuminated a hole that was still present that the occluders did not seal. Photo by Dave Fornell
