Interventional Cardiologists performing percutaneous coronary intervention with Azurion and IntraSight

Clinical efficiency in coronary artery disease care


Combine confidence and speed in diagnosis with efficient and effective treatment to improve outcomes for your patients.

Assessing a patient quickly, yet accurately, and deliver effective treatment efficiently is essential.


For the diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease, you are constantly striving to optimize the clinical pathway. This requires solutions that helps you assess patient risks correctly, select the right treatment path for each patient and help deliver effective, efficient treatment in interventional procedures. With clinical efficiency in coronary artery disease care, we offer integrated solutions that work together to help deliver robust clinical results along with connected workflows to drive departmental efficiency.

Coronary artery disease today


With the high prevalence of coronary artery disease, a growing number of patients require care. To ensure patients receive high quality of care in an effective and efficient manner, it becomes increasingly important to help optimize the care pathway. We segmented in two phases. The diagnostic phase, in which we are committed to identify those patients that will benefit from having a stent placed and the second phase, where for those selected patients a PCI can be performed effectively and efficiently.

Challenges you face in diagnosis

Costly retesting
Due to non-invasive diagnostic exams with suboptimal images.1

Better patient risk stratification
40% of diagnostic angiographies are followed by PCI. 60% are not.2

Immediate access
Difficult to get immediate access to tools, images and reporting for multimodality diagnosis.

4.  When an occluded blood vessel that requires treatment is identified, a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is a therapeutic procedure that can be utilized to treat the vessel. A PCI includes angioplasty and positioning a stent across the stenosis to open the vessel. Clinicians conventionally rely on angiography and physiologic measurements of pressure and/or flow, which are not meaningfully connected, to plan a therapeutic intervention. Planning the therapeutic intervention can include selecting various parameters related to the stent, such as positioning, length, diameter, etc. While the collected external cardiac test data, intravascular imaging data, and/or physiologic data can help in planning the therapeutic intervention, their efficacy is limited by the fact they exist as separate tests. For example, clinicians are unable to easily visualize where in the blood vessel the data was collected. Further, physiologic data and external cardiac test data are not integrated in a meaningful way that would allow a clinician to assess the effect of a PCI on, e.g., blood flow to the myocardium. Data on file. Tochterman et al.
