Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute Uses New Philips Technology for Interventional Procedures

Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute is the first in the United States to use technology, developed with Philips, that makes it easier for doctors to perform image guided procedures for heart and vascular disease.

Institute clinicians unveiled the new Azurion with FlexArm by Philips at the annual International Symposium on Endovascular Therapy (ISET) in South Florida in January.
"With FlexArm, Philips' engineers have overcome near-impossible geometric and mechanical barriers to enable clinicians to achieve clinical excellence in image guided therapy," said Barry T. Katzen, M.D., founder and chief medical executive of Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute, part of Baptist Health South Florida.
The Azurion with FlexArm makes its debut at a time when cramped quarters are the norm in an interventional procedure room. The FlexArm gantry enables clinicians to quickly and easily visualize critical anatomy and identify changes to the patient during a procedure. Azurion with FlexArm includes a set of innovations that makes it easier for clinicians to perform imaging across the whole patient in both 2D and 3D.
