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. View a comparison chart list of all angiographic imaging systems available in the U.S. It requires a login, but it is free. Find information specific to small, mobile C-arm systems.

Radiation dose monitoring for angiography on the Canon Infinix angiography system. Radiation dose tracking in cardiology.

An example of a real-time patient radiation dose tracking system available for Canon's angiography imaging system. Systems like this can show cumulative dose to the patient's skin as a reminder to rotate the C-arm to new positions to prevent burns during long procedures. These types of systems also can help track patient dose and the location of that dose to be included as part of their electronic patient record. This data also enables quality assurance assessments.
