ZACHARY— Dr. Nayan Agarwal, interventional cardiologist at Cardiovascular Institute of the South in Zachary, is the first in Louisiana to use the OPTICROSS HD IVUS 60 MHz Imaging Catheter which provides better imaging during coronary procedures. The procedure was performed at Lane Regional Medical Center.
This new, advanced technology by Boston Scientific sets a new standard for image quality, depth and deliverability. It offers increased stent visibility and clearer resolution to confirm proper stent placement to the vessel wall, and it detects fine structures not visible with older models.
“The clarity of the images produced from this new catheter is a game changer for physicians,” explained Dr. Agarwal. “This tool makes it much easier for us to interpret the details of each case, ultimately improving the outcomes of our patients.”
