-- Safer for patients because it photographs more of the body and requires

less radiation and imaging contrast than other modalities.

New Electrophysiology Laboratory

-- Electrophysiology features new Stereotaxis equipment and technology.

-- Includes a sophisticated magnetic guided catheter system which allows

for less invasive procedures. Externally applied, computer controlled

magnetic fields guide delivery of catheters and guidewires through the

blood vessels and chambers of the heart to treatment sites. The

magnetic fields govern the motion of the tip of the device resulting in

improved navigation for delivery of therapy, improved safety, shorter

procedure times, and reduced x-ray exposure to patients and medical

staff.

-- The Electrophysiology Laboratory is also equipped with traditional

angiography and interventional equipment for coronary and peripheral

vascular procedures.

New Peripheral Vascular Catheterization Laboratory

-- Combination catheterization laboratory designed primarily for

peripheral vascular cases, but also accommodates interventions related

to the heart.

-- Larger in size than the other catheterization laboratories.
