The Role of Imaging to Guide Your Procedure in Complex Lesions
You should attend the session if you want:
To see cases that address typical issues in stenting complex lesions.
To learn about PCI ASSIST, a new set of advanced imaging technologies that can be used in routine and in complex lesions to:
- guide the stents during the procedure, determine optimal apposition of proximal part of main branch stent.
- Precisely position the side branch stent.
- Minimize stent overlap.
- Avoid a gap between the two stents.

Key Learning Objectives
This webinar is to inform and educate interventional cardiologists and cardiac surgeons on
- Sharing Dr BEN-AMER’s experience on stenting techniques in complex lesions.
- Understanding how StentViz and StentVesselViz can be used in routine to help guide stent placement and assess stent deployment.
- Understanding how StentViz and StentVesselViz can give you information both on stent overlap and stent positioning vs. a bifurcation.
- Discovering the complementary benefits of StentViz and StentVesselViz in case of T-Stenting.
- Interventional Cardiologists
