IVUS Fully Integrated into GE 's Interventional Suite

With the full integration of GE Healthcare's (GE) Innova system with Volcano's s5i IVUS system, there is no need to roll around your IVUS unit. Through its collaboration with Volcano Corp., GE offers Innova IVUS as a fully integrated intravascular ultrasound system for the cath lab and interventional suite.

Volcano's IVUS automated features include: automatic border detection to identify lumen and vessel walls; automatic measurements to quantify lumen and vessel areas and diameters and plaque burder; and real-time VH IVUS to identify the type and amount of plaque present.

IVUS is fully integrated into the lab. Plug in a catheter and begin imaging - IVUS should always be on and ready. IVUS images are simultaneously displayed on the Innova monitor boom - and additional monitors - if desired. Active patient data from Innova is automatically transferred to the IVUS system.

Automated archiving allows for easy patient review - all images are saved under the same DICOM ID as the angio case. Incorporation of IVUS into the central physician control room reportedly allows for faster and enhanced workflow.
