Shimadzu Medical Systems highlighted new features of its Trinias Interventional X-ray line at the America College of Cardiology (ACC) 2017. A key feature of Trinias, is the ability to image from fingertip to fingertip during a transradial approach, which makes for much shorter hospital stay with the patient up and moving almost immediately after the procedure. Features Like RSM-DSA, a type of motion correction subtraction, eliminating the artifacts from the patient motion during acquisition while STENTVIEW, is an enhanced visualization during stent placement in real-time. Shimadzu also highlighted its partnership with Raysafe and its real-time staff radiation dose monitoring solution. For more information: http://shimadzu.com/med/products/angio/index.html

This is a demonstration of the the Philips TrueVue photo-realistic rendering and lighting source technology. This example highlights a transcatheter ASD closure with two Amplatzer occluders. The technology allows users to changing the lighting conditions to improve contrast. The light source can also be moved around to change the shadows and add more depth perception. The light source also can be pushed through the tissue to back light the anatomical structures, as shown in this example at the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) 2018 meeting. The backlighting confirms a gap at the top of the image where part of the septal defect remains exposed.

Northwestern Medicine has purchased several smaller Chicago suburban hospitals in the past few years to expand its healthcare system. This has enabled these smaller community hospitals to offer new, cutting-edge cardiovascular medical technologies much sooner than might have otherwise been possible due to its association with Northwestern Medicine's luminary Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute in Chicago. Central DuPage Hospital is one of the newer hospitals in the network and now offers transcatheter aortic valve replacements (TAVR), transcatheter leadless pacemakers, minimally invasive left atrial appendage (LAA) occlusions and the latest surgical valve replacement technologies.
