  We pioneered and continue to advance the concept that complete evaluation can reduce complications at time of intervention and later.

Through panning and rotational cine,we obtain over 2,500 select views per patient   rather than  the usual 5-7-10 views

*Excitement, High blood pressure, Exercise, Tobacco, Sex, using too much contrast material during Catheterization, Administering Adrenalin or a Similar Drug, etc.

Even highly detailed coronary examination like the one above is of little value if the patient is sent to surgery without knowing whether or not conditions exist  like these shown on the next page. In our commitment to do complete studies, we have found that 25% of patients have cardiovascular  problems in areas other than the heart which could cause life-threatening complications during or shortly after surgery.
