ENID, Okla. — St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center hosted an open house Wednesday afternoon to unveil the hospital’s new cardiovascular imaging system.

Installation of the imaging system, the newest feature in the hospital’s Cardiac Catheterization/Interventional Radiology Suite, was part of a $1 million renovation project that began in April, according to a St. Mary’s press release.

The Alphenix angiography system includes stent enhancement capabilities and “will help guide the physician and staff during complex cardiovascular interventions,” according to the press release.

Upgrades also include close proximity to a new family consultation room, which “will assure a timely report by the physician to the patient’s loved ones after the procedure is complete,” according to the press release. Images of the catheterization procedure can be shown by the physician to the patient’s support team, according to the press release.

“We are excited to offer enhanced cardiac capabilities for our patients,” said John Bartolozzi, M.D., medical director of St. Mary’s Cath Lab.

Tania Warnock, marketing project lead at Integris Bass Baptist Health Center, said Bass also uses a cardiovascular imaging system in its cath lab.
