This webinar provides insight from Dr. Hitoshi Matsuo on the Opsens physiology system and its advantages in routine use to diagnose coronary artery disease. Dr. Matsuo will share interesting cases he performed in complex PCI performed at the Gifu Heart Center, in Japan. The presentation will examine the Opsens dPR novel resting index and the Optowire technology based on the 2nd Generation Fiber Optic sensor.
