Baptist Health’s Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute Becomes First Hospital in South Florida to Use New Philips VeriSight Pro for 3D Cardiac Imaging

Baptist Health’s Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute announces it’s the first in South Florida to use the new VeriSight Pro, a real-time 3D intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) catheter from Philips. The technology offers superior 2D and 3D live imaging guidance for a wide range of cardiac procedures in structural heart disease and electrophysiology, allowing interventionalists to navigate procedures with ease, providing superior care, and optimizing cath-lab performance with the aim to deliver the highest quality outcomes for the hospital’s cardiac patients. Dr. Ramon Quesada and Dr. Bernardo Lopez-Sanabria are the first two interventional cardiologists to use this technology for Baptist Health.

“As physicians, we are always exploring new ways to care for our patients and provide them with the best treatment options for their long-term future”, said Dr. Quesada, Medical Director of Structural Heart, Complex Coronary Intervention at the Institute. “The VeriSight Pro technology is a game changer, ultimately allowing us to provide patients who need this procedure with a smoother and safer recovery process.”

Some of the benefits of the Philips’ ICE catheter VeriSight Pro include:

  • Exceptional 3D image quality allows physicians to customize care for more patients
  • FDA 510k-cleared real-time 3D intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) catheter has the potential to improve standard of care for structural heart disease and electrophysiology procedures
  • Reduced need for general anesthesia accelerates workflows, increases efficiency, and broadens treatment options
  • Interventionalists can digitally change the scan angle to capture views without manually repositioning the ultrasound tip, a unique feature of this ICE catheter.
  • Can provide a 90 by 90 degree 3D field of view as well as allow physicians to view two scan planes simultaneously

“VeriSight Pro allows our physicians to capture the very best possible live images and enables our team to deliver quality outcomes for our cardiac patients, so they can get back to their daily routines,” said Dr. Lopez-Sanabria, interventional cardiologist with the Institute. “I am honored to be a part of the team to be the first in South Florida to use this new technology and bring it to our community.”
