About GOPView iRVPlus
Clinical teams rely on this type of tool during fluoroscopy procedures, such as angioplasty or stent replacement, during which real-time images are used to guide catheters to the target location. GOPView iRVPlus relies on a continuous adaptive filtration method to analyze every pixel in an image, giving every structure in the image the same level of analysis. This rotationally invariant process guarantees that all objects, independent of position and orientation, receive the highest level of image enhancement possible. This eliminates the risk of critical information being overlooked during a procedure, leading to higher clinical value. Additionally, overall dose levels can be decreased, which minimizes exposure of both patients and medical staff.
