Hybrid Cath Lab Solutions
"Siemens helped us plan and set it up. An Artis zeego forms the centerpiece of our new hybrid room, which gives us tremendous treatment flexibility."

Compared with a conventional cath lab, the added expenditures for a hybrid room setup appear considerable. However, a hybrid cath lab can position a hospital as an innovative healthcare provider, one that offers a higher level of care.
The higher investment is also justified by the potential for new treatment opportunities and additional patients. For example, percutaneous valve implantations offer an alternative for high-risk patients previously considered untreatable. In addition, a hybrid environment allows emergency surgical intervention in the event of complications.
