Interventional X-ray Coronary Angiography

  • Peter LanzerEmail author


Interventional X-ray coronary angiography is a primary tool to guide catheter-based coronary interventions. High-quality images are required to orient the operator about the status of the target sites at all times throughout the entire length of the procedure. For smooth and safe conduct of coronary interventions, mastery of all steps of image acquisition and interpretation is mandatory.
