New Cardiac Imaging Technology at Good Samaritan Hospital Delivers Greater Accuracy, Less Discomfort

Posted By: Advancing Care

Rockland County elected officials joined Michael Israel, President and CEO of WMCHealth; Dr. Mary Leahy, CEO of Bon Secours Charity Health System; Good Samaritan Hospital Leadership and cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons and electrophysiologists to cut the ribbon for the new Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory and advanced imaging equipment.

At the expanded Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at Good Samaritan Hospital, new imaging technologies and equipment from Philips help provide more accurate diagnoses, decrease patient discomfort and increase the potential for shorter hospital stays.

Delivering sharp images along with anatomical guidance for physicians to use during interventional procedures, the guidance system automatically maintains precise alignment with the patient’s anatomy during the implantation of balloons, stents and other cardiac care devices. This precision enables the use of minimally invasive surgical techniques during implantation, thus reducing patient discomfort.

The new platform also reduces radiation exposure. It now assists Good Samaritan Hospital’s cardiac specialists with TAVR (transcatheter aortic valve replacement) and mitral repair, as well as stroke prevention alternatives and left atrial appendage closure procedures.
