Integrated Imaging System Provides Easy Access to Tools

The Innova IVUS — an integration of Volcano Corp.’s intravascular ultrasound imaging (IVUS) capabilities and GE Healthcare’s Innova all-digital X-ray cath lab imaging system — is designed to give a clearer view of coronary and peripheral vessel morphology in an accessible manner.
The product is made possible, in part, due to Volcano’s latest PC-based IVUS platform that reduces the size, weight and noise of the IVUS console, allowing the unit to be
located in the control room or in other areas outside of the daily traffic pattern of the cath lab.
With Innova IVUS, clinicians have easier access to imaging tools that can help them better determine the extent of cardiovascular disease and assist in performing therapeutic procedures such as stent placement and assessment. It also allows clinicians to access IVUS commands on the Innova Central touchscreen, and they have the option of using additional IVUS control devices as well, such as trackball or joystick.
The IVUS Patient Interface Module (PIM) can hang on the bed rail while the IVUS CPU is located away from lab traffic in the control room. The patient information automatically transfers from the Innova System to the IVUS, eliminating the need to manually enter patient data. Clinicians have the flexibility to view IVUS images on the existing monitor bank, a separate, dedicated IVUS monitor and/or a monitor in the control room.
