Coronary Artery Disease

Enhance diagnostic confidence and therapeutic efficiency

Coronary artery disease (CAD) demands effective and workflow-optimized interventions. Learn how you can personalize cardiovascular care and prepare for the future supported by our clinical expertise, technological excellence, and market foresight.

Our testing, multimodality imaging, and therapy solutions can help prevent unnecessary invasive procedures along the CAD pathway. And innovations at the point of care expand opportunities to improve precision for patients. The digital competence of our portfolio helps interdisciplinary teams make faster care management decisions that can lead to improved clinical outcomes.

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most common type of heart disease.1 While age can be a risk factor, coronary artery disease does not only affect old people. Younger people can also have a heart attack. Frank, an athletic 50-year-old man, went for a cardio checkup at the request of a friend. Learn how his friend saved him from a heart attack.

Frequently Asked Questions 

We offer both static and real-time stent enhancement with ClearStent and ClearStent Live, respectively. Both options are available on all our systems without the need of an additional workstation and can also be used via the footswitch. Users of ARTIS icono and ARTIS pheno have the possibility to choose between two ClearStent Live options – one eliminating cardiac movement in the enhanced view and one overlaying the enhanced view on live fluoro. For more information please visit our ClearStent Live website

Yes, we offer syngo CTO Guidance to support you in performing CTO cases with shorter wiring times and shorter fluorosopy duration. For more information please visit our syngo CTO Guidance website.

The use of syngo CTO Guidance is independent of scanner brand. For more information, please visit our syngo CTO Guidance website.

With Sensis Vibe, hyperemic and nonhyperemic calculation methods are seamlessly integrated into our recording system. The gold standard FFR, resting Pd/Pa and the Boston Scientific algorithm DFR are integrated. Siemens Healthineers also offers angio-based FFR with the standalone CAAS vFFR workstation on all our systems and the integrated QuantWeb vFFR as part of our syngo Application Software on ARTIS icono and ARTIS pheno. For more information, please visit our vFFR website.

Yes, this is possible with the use of CAAS IV-LINQ and is IVUS or OCT vendor independent.

Yes, the MAGNETOM Sola Cardiovascular Edition is a 1.5T MRI scanner configured to meet the demands of cardiologists. The MAGNETOM Sola Cardiovascular Edition offers exams in free breathing for vulnerable cardiac patients and includes tissue characterization applications as well as planning and guidance software tools, such as myExam Cardiac Assist. For more information, please visit our MAGNETOM Sola Cardiovascular Edition website.

For robust cardiac imaging without motion artifacts high temporal resolution is needed. Synergizing the best scanner technology with fast and intelligent workflow applications leads to a complete solution for fast and confident decisions. The unique temporal resolution of Dual Source technology eliminates cardiac and coronary motion at low contrast and radiation dose levels. For more information please, visit our Cardiac CT website.

With the Atellica VTLi® Patient-side Immunoassay Analyzer, Siemens Healthineers offers a simple-to-use tool which delivers accurate, clinically actionable, high-sensitivity troponin I results in under 8 minutes – directly at point of care. For more information, please visit our Atellica VTLi website.

With Sensis Vibe, Siemens Healthineers offers a scalable solution for hemodynamic acquisitions within the cath lab and hospital infrastructure. It is a central point of data handling and the vital core where all events, decisions, measurements, and data from the procedures are captured. Sensis reduces administrative effort and standardizes documentation and reporting across interventional entities. For more information, please visit our Sensis Vibe website.
