CGHMC Opens its renovated "State of the Art" Cardiac Catheterization Unit


CGH  inaugurated its newly renovated Cardiac Catheterization Unit (CCT) last August 13, 2008. Its addition of the latest state of the art machines  makes it easily one of the most modern in the nation.

It is capable of providing the sharpest angiographic images for all vascular territories from head to foot. It is also capable of providing electrophysiologic studies and radiofrequency ablative procedures for arrhythmias. The laboratory is also in the process of acquiring a coronary intra-vascular ultrasound (IVUS) as well as Doppler flow wires for assessment of coronary artery lesions.

Dr. James G. Dy, honored the event, with Dr. Dt. Bun Yok, Director of Heart Institute.
