    Previously, multiple black and white image frames had to be reviewed to visualize the contrast medium flow through the blood vessels. Now with the colors of syngo iFlow the representation of contrast from its initial entry into the blood vessels to its flow throughout can be shown in one image.

    Over the past 2 years, a new generation of drug-eluting stents These stents are coated with a special medication that prevents scar tissue growth in the artery where the stent is placed, significantly reducing the risk of in-stent restenosis.
