This image is an angiogram of the left coronary artery in a sheep (left anterior descending and circumflex arteries)!

Here’s how we know: The ovine model is known for its typically left dominant coronary system. It means that the posterior descending interventricular coronary artery stems from the left coronary (circumflex) artery.

Angiography is a valuable tool for endovascular procedures. Over the past 20 years, IMMR has accrued deep experience in the Vascular arena, working with coronary, peripheral, carotid and neurovascular technologies at human scale in normal as well as in pathologic models.

This image was acquired using a Philips FD20 flat panel angiography system in one of IMMR’s two hybrid ORs that enable innovators to conduct sophisticated procedures combining surgical, interventional and imaging techniques.
