Floor-mounted cath lab vs ceiling-mounted cath lab.jpg

When people begin searching for a cath lab system, one of the first things they tend to notice is that there are TONS of options! Single plane or bi-plane? Which detector size? Want to add a hemodynamic monitoring system to that? How about an injector? The list of possible configurations goes on and on.

Most folks are able to arrive at relatively quick decisions on many cath lab options, but we often see some confusion when it comes to choosing floor mounting or ceiling mounting. Both types require a facility to install a ceiling structure, so does it really matter how the lab is mounted? Absolutely! And in more ways than one. To show you what we mean, we'll break down the differences that might inform your choice of either a floor-mounted or ceiling-mounted cath lab system. For comparison's sake, we'll use the GE Innova 3100 IQ (floor-mounted) and Philips Allura XPER FD20 (ceiling-mounted) as examples.
