Paper Abstract

The performance of a new high line rate (1023) video imaging system (VHR) installed in the cardiac catherization laboratory at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center is compared to the previously installed standard line rate (525) video imaging system (pre-VHR). Comparative performance was assessed both quantitatively using a standardized evaluation protocol and qualitatively based on analysis of data collected during the observation of clinical procedures for which the cardiologists were asked to rank the quality of the fluoroscopic image. The results of this comparative study are presented and suggest that the performance of the high line rate system is significantly improved over the standard line rate system.
