Delray Medical Center Opens Additional Cardiac Catheterization Lab to Enhance Patient Care

As part of its commitment to better serve the community, Delray Medical Center proudly unveils the new hybrid catheterization laboratory. The hospital now has the capabilities to capture and view detailed images of a patient’s vascular structure, thereby facilitating a faster and more accurate diagnosis and treatment of vascular disease. The new lab also allows physicians to perform minimally invasive vascular procedures with reduced radiation exposure.
The cath lab’s advanced technology features the Allura Xper FD20 fixed X-ray system. It provides crisp, virtually distortion-free visualization of small details and objects to support endovascular procedures such as abdominal aortic aneurysm repair and carotid stenting.
Vascular procedures often involve extended fluoroscopy times and a high number of radiographic images. The Allura Xper FD20 fixed X-ray system offers DoseWise™, which has an advanced X-ray dose reduction features to reduce radiation exposure during minimally invasive procedures.
Other features of the Delray Medical Center’s new hybrid cath lab include:
• Preset vascular protocols to ensure optimal image quality
• A fixed X-ray system that features automated settings and table-side controls to help clinicians focus on the patient and the procedure
• Table tilt and cradle movement that enable optimal patient positioning for more invasive or needle guided puncture procedures
