Community leaders joined hospital staff for a ribbon cutting celebrating completion of a biplane imaging interventional radiology suite at the Abrazo West Campus.
The biplane system produces highly detailed 3-D views of blood vessels as well as cross-sectional soft tissue imaging that provide guidance for interventional therapies and procedures such as revascularization of vessels, ablations, embolization and interventional neurology.
Interventional radiology is used for minimally invasive treatment of a wide range of conditions in the body by inserting various small tools, such as catheters or wires, from outside the body.
“The images produced by the biplane system can be used to aid physicians in treating aneurysm, artery blockages, brain and neck tumors and other conditions,” said Stan Holm, Abrazo West Campus CEO.
“We continue to invest in our campus to provide services for residents of the West Valley and beyond.”
West Valley dignitaries attending the dedication included Avondale City Councilman Lorenzo Sierra, Goodyear Mayor Georgia Lord and Southwest Valley Chamber of Commerce President and CEO John Safin.
“This is another huge step for Abrazo West Campus,” Safin said.
