Catheterization Laboratory


In order to establish an accurate diagnosis for patients and to reduce anxiety levels during the medical investigation processes, we provide our physicians and specialists with advanced sophisticated technology in order to provide a more comprehensive consultation and evaluation.

The advanced angiography system in the catheterization laboratory at the Istishari Hospital is a fusion of innovative information technology and medical technology; helping our specialists perform both vascular and non-vascular diagnostics and interventions in various parts of the body.

The flexible and smart features of the angiograph system, such as the dynamic density optimization and the 3 D reconstruction, allows our specialists to enhance any image for accurate and clear diagnosis. In turn, this helps them control any dose they want to inject in the patient's arteries and veins during any interventional procedure, while facilitating any operational major intervention on the same angiography table if needed.
