3D Rotational Angiography for Enhanced Diagnostics
Advanced digital technology
Ellis Medicine's Rossman and Jeanne Gustin Angiography Suite is equipped with advanced digital technology that enables doctors to view full color, three dimensional x-rays in real time.
It also enables them to look directly inside veins and arteries, maneuvering through images of body tissue using a computer keyboard.
The new 3D Rotational Angiography (3DRA) system provides enhanced diagnostic capabilities for stroke, carotid artery disease and other vascular disorders. The fully digital Integris Allura X-ray system, developed by Philips Medical Systems, enables physicians to capture and view detailed 3D images of a patient's vascular structure, leading to faster and more accurate diagnosis and treatment of vascular disease. It also exposes patients to less radiation during the actual procedures than other systems. In addition, the "biplane" configuration system allows physicians to view anatomy in two planes, simultaneously - a crucial technique for the more complex brain procedures.
"Both our patients and clinicians will benefit from the speed and superior image accuracy of this new X-ray system," said John Fulco, M.D., Ellis Medicine's chief of vascular interventional radiology. "It allows us to complete a variety of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures faster, which means the patient is off the table sooner and exposed to less radiation."
