Hamilton's Mashburn Cardiac Pavilion's two cardiac catheterization labs feature fully digital Artis Zee® angiography systems with flat-panel detectors that enable physicians to view high resolution images allowing them to see interventional devices such as guidewires, catheters, and coronary stents in precise detail and from almost any angle. Hamilton's hybrid suite features the first multi-axis system with robotic technology, the Siemens Artis Zeego angiography system. It is used for cardiac and non-cardiac procedures, including endovascular procedures.
Pictured is one of HMC’s two dedicated
catheterization labs which feature fully
digital Artis Zee® angiography systems with
flat-panel detectors that enable physicians to
view high-resolution images of patients’ blood
vessels on full-color 56-inch screens. The flat
detectors also allow physicians to see
interventional devices such as guidewires,
catheters and coronary stents in precise detail
and from almost any angle. The Artis Zee® is
specially designed to provide the lowest
possible radiation dose and its ergonomic design
makes the procedure faster and less stressful
HMC’s cardiovascular program features a team of specially trained cardiovascular nurses, technicians, board certified cardiologists and interventional cardiologists.

Cardiovascular Hybrid Suite houses the Artis
Zeego, the first multi-axis system with robotic
technology. The suite is used for cardiac and
non-cardiac procedures, including endovascular
procedures. It offers unmatched positioning
flexibility to enable the most advanced clinical
procedures and techniques. It enables physicians
to see fine blood vessels and interventional
devices in precise detail from almost any angle
– all this while providing faster, more accurate
diagnoses and improved outcomes for patients,
and the lowest possible radiation exposure.
The cardiovascular hybrid suite can be used for all types of vascular procedures including ones to gain vascular access for dialysis, angioplasty and stenting of vessels in the arms, legs and neck, and abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. Cardiac procedures that can be performed in the hybrid suite include heart catheterization with cardiac stenting, cardiac rhythm implants – such as a pacemaker or internal cardiac defibrillator – and cardiac ablations to correct abnormal heart rhythms.
