2011: VVMC elevates Cardiac Catheterization lab
Verde Valley Medical Center’s Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory allows physicians to diagnose and treat cardiovascular patients who have a wide range of conditions through minimally invasive procedures.
Verde Valley Medical Center’s Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory allows physicians to diagnose and treat cardiovascular patients who have a wide range of conditions through minimally invasive procedures.

Cardiology patients at VVMC now have access to an extremely sophisticated Cardiac Catheterization Lab-oratory (Cath Lab) with the addition of the GE Innova 3100IQ system.

The new system allows physicians to diagnose and treat cardiovascular patients who have a wide range of conditions through minimally invasive procedures.

This new system expands VVMC’s capabilities to provide a greater range of image-guided, minimally invasive cardiovascular treatment options.

The all-digital X-ray system allows physicians to more clearly see the blood vessels and anatomy of the heart, as well as blood vessels throughout the entire body – even small, fine vessels all the way to the fingertips.

The system provides exceptional image quality through high-contrast, high-resolution views on an extra-large, flat-screen monitor that shows up to four different images at one time.

The 3-D images can be rotated for additional views of the anatomy. The large, circular X-ray platform rotates 20 degrees in just one second, reducing radiation exposure.

VVMC Cardiac Cath Lab marks 10 years

This year, VVMC celebrates 10 years of providing state-of-the-art, comprehensive interventional cardiac catheterization care.

Since 2001, board-certified cardiologists and specialty trained staff have been performing life-saving diagnostic and interventional cardiovascular procedures in VVMC’s technologically advanced Car-diac Catheterization Labor-atory (Cath Lab).
