What challenges are experienced with structural heart disease procedures?

Due to tremendous growth of the world population over age 651 the number of structural heart disease (SHD) procedures is rapidly expanding. To serve this population patients better and faster, advanced imaging tools increasing procedural efficiency are required.

Potential to:
  • reduce scheduling effort and staffing needs5
  • reduce procedural time and costs5
  • use conscious sedation vs. general anesthesia
  •  enable shorter patient stay and recovery
  • further reduce fluoroscopy and contrast dose
