In August, Kauvery Hospital Alwarpet introduced the state’s first AI-enabled Ultreon Optical Coherence Tomography with Angiography Co-Registration System (OCT-ACR), the latest technology in coronary imaging.

The OCT-ACR technology offers accurate diagnosis of cholesterol deposits, severity of calcium deposits, length of blockages, and vessel size, aiding in safe stent sizing and placement.

The AI-enabled system claims to enable rapid assessment of coronary blockages in seconds, reducing procedural time while enhancing safety and precision.

Dr. Rajaram Ananthraman, Senior Interventional Cardiologist, led the team in performing Tamil Nadu’s first Ultreon OCT-ACR-guided PTCA stenting.

In June, the facility introduced the Kauvery Institute of Robotic Surgeries, marking the initiation of the state’s first-ever Robotic Surgery Program for Kidney Transplants.

The programme encompasses various medical specialities, including gastroenterology, hepato-pancreato-biliary surgery, urology, oncology, and cardio-thoracic surgery, with a focus on kidney transplantation and live liver donor operations.
