He heard from critics that the heavy-duty imaging equipment added to an operating room would just get pushed aside.

But the hospital management team saw a need and a demand for the inclusion of fluoroscopy equipment used in a catheterization lab in their new operating room. So they moved forward with creating the endovascular OR, which Williams said has exceeded expectations.

In this podcast, Edwards describes the process and the reaction to their hybrid OR.
