Sorting through the GE cath lab product line for the best system to meet your hospital or imaging center’s needs can involve a great deal of research and communication. If you’ve managed to narrow the field to “the one”, congratulations! But now is hardly the time to rest on your laurels. Planning for cath lab equipment installation takes longer than you might think.  A host of cabinets, workstations, tables, and arms will eventually be on their way to your facility and, in truth, the decision-making has only just begun. The next choices you make will help balance both optimum workflow and a logical cath lab networking layout for your OR.

The diagram below demonstrates the common communication chain in GE cath labs. This chain is important to keep in mind as you communicate with your installers, IT specialists, doctors, and contractors on establishing your final layout.
