Cath Lab installation

Jupiter hospital creates a benchmark in the healthcare industry across South Asia! Removal of the old cath lab system and installation of the new one in a record time of 8 days is sheer demonstration of the project maintenance and biomedical teams’ solid dedication and determination.

We are proud to introduce the state-of-the-art IGS 520 flat panel cath lab in our hospital which enables us to handle a wider range of complex cardiac procedures with this latest technology. The ultramodern flat panel has the unique technology that enables diagnosis and treatment of patients in all angulations while improving image quality at no extra dose.

The new cath lab addresses one of the biggest challenges in interventional cardiology today, clearly visualizing the finest vessels and intricate anatomy of the human heart. What makes this installation of the new cath lab in Jupiter so special is that the replacement process of the entire cath lab system was the fastest in the history of Wipro GE across South Asia Region countries.
