An optimal angiographic viewing angle is critical for correct diagnosis and intervention in coronary bifurcation lesion percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). The current study aims at validating a dedicated software tool (MEDIS, Leiden, The Netherlands) that will improve the selection of the best viewing angle.

| Estimated Primary Completion Date:
||December 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
|Ages Eligible for Study:
||18 Years and older
|Genders Eligible for Study:
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
In patients undergoing coronary angiography, those with an angiographically significant bifurcation lesion will be identified. A total of 50 patients will be selected. After diagnostic angiography, optimal viewing angles for the bifurcation lesion will be calculated using the dedicated Medis (Leiden, the Netherlands) software.
