Diagnostic catherisation of the heart in the MRI suite is now feasible. With our MRI conditional guidewire and expertise we can help you to move cathlab procedures to the MRI suite. Our PMCF study provided the clinical and practical evidence for a transfer.
Using MRI guidance in hemodynamics can give you a one-stop-shop diagnosis in CMR, which saves cathlab time. Doing the procedure in CMR also reduces the radiation exposure of both patient and doctor. In addition, the use of MRI allows visualization of anatomical tissue and structural heart diseases.
A recent paper by Knight et al (2019) in JCMR shows how CMR can eliminate the ctahlab pressure measurement, while keeping total department time for diagnostics of pulmonary hypertension in CMR below 60 min.
