Montreal Heart Institute gets  $3.5 million for new equipment

MONTREAL – The Quebec government is contributing $3.46 million to the Montreal Heart Institute for the acquisition of leading-edge cardiology and diagnostic imaging equipment.

A new cardiac catheterization room and electrophysiology room will both be furnished with advanced-technology equipment in cardiac angiography. This equipment is distinguished by its completely digital solar collector technology, which produces a better image quality than the traditional systems.

In terms of catheterization, the equipment paves the way to new techniques in rotation imaging, three-dimensional reconstruction and stent enhancement, making it possible to reduce the length of procedures and optimize treatments. In terms of electrophysiology, the equipment will improve imaging techniques necessary for the treatment of arrhythmias by catheter ablation.

Founded in 1954, the Montreal Heart Institute is an ultra-specialized hospital centre dedicated to care, research, teaching and prevention, as well as the assessment of new technologies in cardiology; it is affiliated with the Université de Montréal and enjoys an international reputation.
