An "Epoch" Day at Aria
Your heart is a surprisingly fragile muscle. Made up of a highly delicate network of arteries, veins and capillaries, its thin walls can be damaged by the slightest touch.
With the unveiling of the Epoch system yesterday, Aria Health's Torresdale Campus became the first on the East Coast to offer this latest generation of the Stereotaxis Magnetic Navigation System which allows Aria's doctors to heal hearts more precisely and safely than ever before.
This system's innovative technology uses computer-controlled magnets - which are positioned outside the body - to programmatically steer catheters and guidewires throughout the delicate cardiovascular system. With the computer to assist in precise navigation, doctors are then able to focus on the patient and the outcome rather than the mechanics of the procedure.
