I have been using the Philips cath lab - AlluraClarity for the last 6 years as my primary lab for coronary interventions, including CHIP cases. The excellent image quality and good system stability with low radiation have helped me perform complex interventions comfortably. I am impressed with the system and have performed over 10,000 interventions without any significant downtime."

Christian Institute of Health Sciences and Research(CIHSR) installed the first Cath lab in Nagaland. We are proud owners of the state-of-the-art technology from Philips that enables people to receive minimally invasive procedures around them without travelling long distances. The Azurion with IntraSight system has provided world-class cardiac interventional capabilities to the people of Nagaland and surrounding areas. Now acute cardiac and life-saving interventional care has indeed become a reality. Even those from economically challenged areas of the state are being provided the best interventional cardiac care through government health insurance funds. We at the hospital are striving to make our services relevant to all sections of the community, and the Azurion imaging system is enabling the Cardiac Care Unit at CIHSR in providing cutting edge facilities to “Serve, Nurture and Transform” everybody ."

Philips has been integral part of my interventional cardiology experience over the last 25 years. Philips Azurion Flexarm Hybrid OR with integrated Laser system, available at Kauvery hospital, has made a huge difference to our interventional practice and the outcome we provide to our patients. We have done a lot of life saving hybrid procedures including CABG SHD procedures with 3D fusion imaging. I congratulate Philips for their 1000+ active Cath labs in India and I wish them many more successes."
