Doesn’t every patient deserve to have stents tailor-made for his/her arteries?
Today, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) machine was used for the first time in Yashoda for angioplasty under the guidance of Dr. Alok Sehgal and Dr. David K. C.
It offers clear and photographic quality images with 1080P resolution. It shows you the minutest blockages- blood clot as well as abnormal accumulation of material in the inner layer of artery wall.
With its precision and efficiency, OCT provides significant outcomes in patients undergoing coronary angioplasty. Its 3D viewing capacity provides an inside view of vessels thereby reducing procedural complications as well as makes it the perfect guide for taking decisions on Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI).
With its novel technology, it makes it possible to view the heart much better and will go a long way in improving patient outcomes.
