Cath Lab Navigation Aids

This channel includes news and new technology innovations for navigation aids to help guide interventional procedures. These include advanced imaging, fusion imaging, rotational angiograpy, fluoro overlay images, robotic systems, and 3D printing and holograms for use in the interventional lab or cath lab.

The use of 3-D printed hearts from patients' pre-TAVR planning CT scans have improved outcomes of procedures at the University of Minnesota. Clearly identifying where calcium is located on the valves prior to TAVR device implantation has helped reduce the incidence of paravalvular leak.  #SCAI, #SCAI2018
