First-in-the-world use of true holographic imaging during a cardiology procedure

TECHNA is proud to play a role in facilitating the introduction of the world’s first use of medical holography in a procedure at UHN’s Peter Munk Cardiac Centre.

“This unique and unprecedented event represents a breakthrough in our ability to see inside the heart without making an incision, and will allow our physicians to treat heart disease with exceptional confidence and accuracy,” said Medical Director of the PMCC, Dr. Barry Rubin. “This incredible advance is another world first for PMCC. We will continue to integrate the most advanced digital technologies to help drive outstanding patient care, teaching and research.”

TECHNA’s team of engineers and project managers worked with RealView Imaging (the company that produces the holoscope) and PMCC’s world-class team of clinicians to successfully integrate this new technology into the hospital environment. Please see the CNW release for more on this accomplishment:
