Dr. Maurice Alston, Interventional Cardiologist at the Tennova Medical Center in Cleveland, TN, provides insights into the significance of variable rate contrast injectors. He explains that using a hand manifold system can be difficult at times and can also create a constant worry of having air embolism. Dr. Alston also speaks on the link between contrast volume and contrast-induced acute kidney injuries (CI-AKI) during angiography procedures. To address these concerns, Dr. Alston gathered procedure data from his department, which he presented to Tennova Medical Center leadership. As a result, the hospital later adopted the ACIST CVi® Contrast Delivery System.
