In modern healthcare today, cardiovascular disease (CVD) continues to grow in prevalence, with CVDs continuing to be the leading cause of death globally.1 As clinicians work to treat CVD, cardiology procedures continue to evolve as demand for minimally invasive surgery grows.2
This year at TCT, the company will feature a connected care pathway experience in interventional cardiology that demonstrates enhancements designed to optimize workflows, unlock efficiencies, increase collaboration, and drive better patient outcomes in the treatment of cardiovascular disease.
The next generation of image-guided systems designed for cardiac imaging
Allia IGS Pulse was designed to improve workflow for the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases in interventional cardiology. As part of its new image chain, the system features the first monopolar x-ray tube used for interventional procedures which helps provide exceptional image quality and optimized dose management regardless of patient size - including large and bariatric patients with a BMI of greater than 30.

New tools for augmented imaging
3D Stent5 is one of GE HealthCare’s latest tools available on the
In today’s practice of interventional cardiology, stents are often used to treat narrowed coronary arteries and keep passageways open that provide oxygen-rich blood to the heart. During stenting procedures, achieving optimal stent expansion is associated with significantly improved long-term clinical outcomes, while stent under expansion has been identified as a strong predictor of major adverse outcomes.6
With 3D Stent, clinicians now have an intraprocedural tool that leverages CMCT7 imaging for 3D reconstruction of the coronary stent. The image is acquired through an automated rotation of the C-arm, providing both 3D and multi-slice images to allow clinicians to see the stent from all angles and get the information needed – including area and diameter measurements - during the procedure with one single acquisition and without inserting any additional devices.
“For the first time we have a detailed depiction of the stent during the procedure without the use of intracoronary imaging,” says Dr.
In addition to 3D Stent, solutions like the OmnifyXR Interventional Suite9 from MediView further expand the 3D capabilities of GE HealthCare’s image guided systems through an interventional augmented reality solution. The OmnifyXR solution allows the user the ability to simultaneously display up to four customized holographic projections of live imaging to help improve ergonomics regardless of working position. The user can also display 3D volume images in augmented reality for improved anatomy visualization to help clinicians better assess complex anatomies and inform clinical decision making. The solution also features remote collaboration, enabling clinicians to partner from a distance, train, proctor and facilitate collaborative care from the viewpoint of the clinician.
Enhanced service for image-guided systems
Tube Watch is now available for interventional image-guided solutions. The solution is designed to remotely monitor and predict X-ray generation component failure, including the tube, to help prevent failures before any disruption occurs – converting potential unplanned downtime into planned events.
Elevating cath lab workflow
The Mac-Lab hemodynamic recording system bridges the gap between a Cath Lab’s clinical and IT to help optimize workflow, productivity and throughput. From the moment patients are admitted, through diagnosis, treatment, and billing, Mac-Lab provides efficient information integration to help support clinical throughput in high-speed, high-volume labs.
Enabling rapid assessment of cardiac and vascular patients with ultrasound
