The Interventional Cardiology Institute at Rabin Medical Center (Beilinson Hospital) has developed new technology that allows a patient and his or her family to watch on an iPad as an angioplasty is performed. The development is the first of its kind. The special project was initiated by Professor Ran Kornowski, head of the hospital’s Interventional Cardiology Institute, with the goal of enabling patients and their families to watch the heart procedure as it is being performed.
“This is a harbinger of a new era of medicine,” Kornowski said.
The iPad application also allows doctors to consult with medical staff from different departments, anywhere and at all times of the day, as well as allowing them to conduct measurements and check health levels directly on the screen of the device.
