GE Healthcare's CardioICE (intra-cardiac echo) is offered as a feature on the new CardioLab XTi EP recording system, released in May 2009. CardioICE synchronizes EP signal data and procedure information with real-time ultrasound images. Acquired during the case, these images are time-aligned with waveforms and information and create a synchronized case report and an integrated workflow solution for the EP lab.
GE Healthcare Introduces CardioICE Synchronized Ultrasound
An example of Philips' TrueVue technology, which offers photo-realistic rendering and the ability to change the location of the lighting source on 3-D ultrasound images. In this example of two Amplazer transcatheter septal occluder devices in the heart, the operator demonstrating the product was able to push the lighting source behind the devices into the other chamber of the heart. This illuminated a hole that was still present that the occluders did not seal.
