Integris Allura Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory

The George Washington University Hospital offers some of the most technologically advanced patient care equipment in the country including the Integris Allura, a large field-of-view catheterization lab with three-dimensional imaging. This superior technology provides faster and more precise cardiovascular exams, potentially decreasing time spent in the operating room, or saving a patient from surgery altogether.

Both patients and clinicians will benefit from the speed and image accuracy of the Integris Allura. The system’s unique technology allows us to complete a variety of diagnostic procedures faster, limiting the time a patient is on the table and exposed to radiation.

Manufactured by Philips Medical Systems, the Integris Allura X-ray system allows physicians to capture and view incredibly detailed 3D images of a patient’s vascular structure, facilitating a faster and more accurate diagnosis by doctors. As a result, it can provide ‘head to toe’ imaging of not only the carotid and coronary vessels, as conventional labs do, but of peripheral vessels as well. Previously patients needed to visit two labs, the cardiac catheterization lab and the vascular lab for ‘head to toe’ imaging, but with the Integris Allura, their imaging can be completed in one visit.

The Integris Allura can be used for all types of heart and vascular diagnostic tests. It is also used for minimally invasive or interventional treatments and surgery, such as coronary stenting, diagnostic catheterization, balloon angioplasty and embolization. The multifunctional system also functions as a highly efficient cardiac catheterization laboratory for conventional tests and can aid in the precise diagnosis of conditions such as stroke, heart disease and aneurysms.

The George Washington University Hospital is proud to partner with Philips Medical Systems to offer this advanced technology, which significantly improves patient care.
