With the assistance of I.V.U.S. technique, better results of angioplasty have been received at the hospital. For the tests of very critical heart patients, results of I.V.U.S. technique have proved to be extremely helpful. All such patients who suspect the chance or doubt of heart disease or are on border-line, must go for I.V.U.S. ultrasound test.
Director of hospital’s Cath Lab, Dr. Tanuj Bhatia informed that Intravascular Ultrasound Studies technique is constantly helping us in achieving better results for the patients at the Cath Lab. Answers to significant questions like how much is the blockage in the arteries of the heart? Is there need of stunting in the heart? And other relevant questions about tests and treatment of heart diseases are found by I.V.U.S. and F.F.R. tests. In Optimal Angioplasty, the I.V.U.S. technique delivers relevant details within just 2 to 3 minutes which assist the Cardiologist in the best treatment of the patient. When Cardiologist has more accurate results of tests, then he goes for stunting of the patient only when it’s the last option. Heart procedure can even be delayed on the basis of I.V.U.S. and F.F.R. test results. The accurate results delivered by this I.V.U.S. technique
are playing very significant role in the decisions of diagnosing the complication as well as carrying out the stunting and procedure of the patient by the Cardiologist.
