St. Mary Medical Center Opens New Cardiovascular Catheterization Labs Reaffirming Role as a Regional Leader in Cardiovascular Medicine
Date:2/17/2009

e alternative to open- heart surgery.

The fully digital system in the new cath labs enables physicians to view extremely detailed three-dimensional (3-D) images of a patient's vascular system. The speed and accuracy of the system facilitates faster and more accurate diagnosis and treatment. Also important, patients are exposed to less radiation during procedures, and the new lab tables accommodate larger-sized patients.

The rotational capabilities of the ceiling and floor mounted G-arms X-ray system provide 3-D imaging quality comparable to CT scans. The wide-screen flat detector digital technology provides outstanding image resolution over a larger field of view. These unique capabilities are especially useful in treating carotid artery (neck) or peripheral vascular (legs or arms) disease. For example, an interventional cardiologist can view a 3-D reconstruction of the vascular system in both legs at the same time.

In addition, physicians and staff had input in the design of the new lab area, says Director of Interventional Cardiology Dr. George Heyrich. "The speed and better visualization of the new system and design of the new lab area allows us to increase productivity and shorten procedure times. These benefits are especially important to patient safety when performing emergency angioplasty to open an artery in the shortest possible time and thus minimize the damage caused by a heart attack."

The investment in this new technology supports a leadership role in providing excellent cardiovascular care to the community. "We have a talented team of experienced physicians at St. Mary Medical Center, and the availability of the most advanced technology definitely plays a role in our ability to treat the most complex cardiovascular conditions," says Chief of Cardiology Dr. Richard Leshner. "Our patients depend on us for the very best quality of care," Leshner adds. "From our exceptional eme
