The NCH Advantage

Bi-plane angiography

Bi-plane angiography provides you with better and less invasive diagnoses and treatment options. This state-of-the-art technology generates images on two separate planes, or parallel levels, at the same time – seen on two separate screens, from top to bottom and from side to side.

Bi-plane angiography not only provides outstanding visual images in 3-D but also reduces the amount of radiation and contrast dye needed. This mean superior results, while also limiting your exposure to radiation.

This new technology also contains a CT scan feature that can further enhance a procedure’s effectiveness and decrease imaging and treatment time.

Bi-plane angiography has enabled new and improved applications for interventional radiology including:

  • Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) – an alternative to hysterectomies
  • Kyphoplasty – treatment for acute spinal fractures
  • Interventional oncology – chemoembolization
  • Neurological and neurosurgical applications
  • Vascular procedures
