Cutting Down on Dye May Make Heart Procedures Safer for Kidney Patients

San Antonio’s University Hospital is one of the first hospitals to use a device called DyeVert Plus. Bluetooth technology embedded in the syringe uses wireless transmission to track exactly how much dye is used for each image. Tests of the new device show it can reduce the amount of dye used in heart procedures on kidney patients by as much as 40 percent.
