Diagnostic & PCI

Main challenges in Coronary Angiography


Percutaneous Coronary Intervention & Chronic Total Occlusion


Choosing the right size of stent to cover the whole lesion

One-touch QA

Quick and user-friendly quantification tool

Assessment of lesion diameter and length

Facilitates confidence in measurement


Precise positioning of the stent can be challenging


Stent enhancement helps guide the intervention before and after stent deployment

Enhanced visibility to help guide the 2nd stent and optimize overlap

Helps guide the side branch stent relative to the main branch with StentVesselViz


Assessing stent deployment to confirm the lesion is correctly treated


Helps assess:

Homogeneous deployment of stent

Proximal main branch stent deployment with StentViz

Final stent deployment: expansion of the stent, minimal overlap, no geographical miss

Helped decide the course of intervention in 40% of cases2

Improved visualization of the relation between the stent and the vessel in 70% of cases2

ASSIST Magazine #3


ASSIST Magazine Image based FFR with QFR®

  1. PCI ASSIST solution includes StentViz and StentVesselViz, features of Interventional X-ray systems Innova IGS 5, Innova IGS 6, Discovery IGS 7 and Discovery IGS 7 OR
  2. DOC1683165 - Clinical evidence generation study based on Columbia images. The Statements by GE’s customers described here are based on results that were achieved in the customer’s unique setting. Since there is no “typical” hospital and many variables exist e.g. hospital size, case load, there can be no guarantee that other customers will achieve the same results. – Method: Assessment of clinical benefit of StentVesselViz: => - Independent assessment of each sequence by 6 experienced interventional cardiologists; - Assessment done in 2 steps by each reviewer: 
    1 - Conventional post-deployment angiogram alone x 11 clinical cases
    2 - Angio + SVV sequence x 11 same clinical cases. Results are based on - Consensus of 5/6 operators
