For senior physician, Dr. Alexander Becker, head of the cardiac cath lab, and his colleague, senior physician, Dr. med. Peter Ong, the key advantage of this system lies in the integration of the different applications covered by the IntraSight module. "IntraSight is like the system's cockpit: this is where all applications meet, where they can be controlled and where we read the results," says Dr. Becker. Previously, external devices would often have to be fetched from a nearby room, plugged in and turned on – all while the patient was already on the examination table. Becker: "That wasn't just more work for us, it also meant an additional strain on the patient." The duration of the procedure is often critical: "Many people, often older people, come to us who cannot or should not be on the table for too long due to poor pumping of the heart."
