Jackson Memorial Hospital celebrated the opening of two newly renovated cardiac catheterization suites during a ribbon-cutting ceremony on August 19. The suites feature the new state-of-the-art
Alphenix Core+ from
Canon Medical Systems, which provides diverse imaging without compromising image quality or performance. Jackson Memorial is the first hospital in Florida offering this new technology.
"Almost six years ago, when Miami-Dade voters approved the bond, we promised a huge makeover for Jackson - new facilities, renovated patient units, and new technology,"
Carlos A. Migoya, president and CEO of
Jackson Health System, said at the ribbon cutting. "We are so excited to launch these new catheterization labs, which offer the most sophisticated and advanced technology to our cardiology patients."
Alphenix Hi-Def Detector technology helps clinicians see finer details during complex interventional procedures, such as stent positioning and stent apposition, wire and catheter navigation through the stent struts, and observation of coil deployment. The slim, off-center C-arm design on the Alphenix Core+ also allows steep angulations for optimized vessel profiling during cardiac interventions. In addition to offering top-quality imaging, the system has several components that allow for a wider range of procedures.
