Angiography configuration enhances workflow and opens doors for new interventional procedures at the facility

WVU Medicine Installs First Alphenix 4D CT in the U.S.

July 24, 2019 — The West Virginia University (WVU) Heart and Vascular Institute is the first hospital in the country to acquire the Alphenix 4D CT from Canon Medical Systems USA Inc. The system offers an angiography configuration to expand capabilities in interventional procedures and help advance patient care in the community. The configuration pairs the Alphenix Sky + C-arm and Hybrid Catheterization Tilt/Cradle Table for interventional procedures with the Aquilion One/Genesis Edition computed tomography (CT) system, allowing clinicians to efficiently plan, treat and verify in a single clinical setting.

The WVU Heart and Vascular Institute uses the Alphenix 4D CT to perform interventional procedures for a wide range of applications, including advanced neurointerventional work, and to calculate diagnoses for heart and vascular diseases. In addition, the system is helping clinicians confidently identify and treat gastrointestinal (GI) bleeds, tumor lesions, percutaneous embolization and chest hematomas, among other complications.

“As we looked to upgrade our interventional radiology equipment, we first had to determine what is driving healthcare and found that a large focus is on heart disease, vascular disease and cancer,” said Luke Marone, M.D., co-director, chief of vascular interventional services, WVU Heart and Vascular Institute. “Already, the system has helped our clinicians think strategically about how they can leverage new technology to expand the horizons of care we offer.”

The Alphenix 4D CT is part of Canon Medical’s suite of Collaborative Imaging tools which puts integrated imaging intelligence at the center of a patient’s journey. The initiative fuses multiple diagnostic imaging modalities with clinical applications to deliver holistic, optimized patient information to healthcare providers at the point of care.
