Doctors at Christus Good Shepherd Medical Center-Longview are using a new digital X-ray system to see detailed images during procedures, an announcement said.

The Innova IGS 5 system from GE Healthcare helps doctors with procedures such as placing a tiny wire mesh stent in a patient’s artery.

“It is critical for us to see the anatomy very clearly while guiding catheters, stents and other medical devices to areas needing treatment,” Dr. Mark Anderson, Chief Medical Officer, Christus Good Shepherd Health System, said in a news release.
