Al-Hadba General Hospital announced the use of a revolutionary new device in the Cardiac Catheterization Department, which uses sound waves on the coronary artery of the heart.

This is the first time for this device to be used in Libya, as the hospital explained on Tuesday.

The device is used to examine the internal condition of the coronary artery in terms of narrowing and possible deposits inside the artery, with an accuracy of up to a quarter of a millimetre.

The Cardiac Catheterization Department at Al-Hadba General Hospital recorded on January 29 the highest rate of these procedures and general heart surgery taking place in the hospital in more than a decade.
