Abrazo West Campus dedicates Biplane Interventional Radiology SuiteMay 11, 2018
Biplane system produces highly detailed imaging for treating a variety of conditions
GOODYEAR (May 11, 2018) – Community leaders joined hospital staff for a ribbon cutting celebrating completion of a new biplane imaging Interventional Radiology suite at the Abrazo West Campus.
The biplane system produces highly detailed three-dimensional 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, interventional neurology and more.
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 Abrazo West Campus CEO Stan Holm. “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 Council member 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. The hospital has become known for its forward-thinking strategy and the IR suite is another example. The strategy that makes the hospital a vanguard for medical treatment is also the reason Abrazo West Campus is an asset to the Southwest Valley community,” said Safin. “Our quality of life is higher and the hospital is an economic driver with nearly a thousand employees. We’re very proud of Abrazo West Campus and congratulate everyone on their next level of quality medical care.”
