Insightful dual-axis rotation

Conventional coronary angiography and single-axis rotational angiography (RA) have limitations when diagnosing coronary artery disease due to vessel overlap and foreshortening. Unlike these techniques which acquire multiple acquisitions, CardiacSwing can perform LAO/RAO and cranial/caudal movements in a single acquisition to enhance visibility and patient care.

Unexpected angles are visualized thanks to the LAO/RAO and cranial/caudal trajectory of CardiacSwing. These views of the coronary tree provide additional support for lesion assessment and can expose views of vasculature that might be hidden in conventional coronary angiography or single-axis RA. CardiacSwing may help reduce misinterpretation caused by vessel eccentricity, overlap, and foreshortening.

CardiacSwing has the potential to reduce procedure time significantly by replacing the multiple acquisitions required by standard angiography or single-axis rotational angiography with a single run.[1-2] In addition, it can enhance the consistency of imaging results by eliminating the gap between adjacent projections and potential deviation from the optimal angle of observation.[3]
