New technology gives Norwalk Hospital doctors shorter procedure times, images
New technology is giving doctors at Norwalk Hospital shorter procedure times and images that can diagnose and treat problems faster.
It's called a biplane angiography system and uses two rotating cameras to create detailed, three-dimensional, X-ray images of blood vessels, soft tissue and blood flow.
Doctors say they're using this technology to perform lifesaving procedures such as opening blockages in blood vessels and even angioplasties. They've had the technology for about a month, and doctors say the results have been spectacular.
Doctors say they can even use the device to put pacemakers, heart monitors and defibrillators into patients.
Doctors went to Germany to research the equipment before it came to Norwalk.
