Philips Backs Cardio Imaging with IVUS Integration

March 26, 2007 - Royal Philips Electronics promises to equip customers who request it with integrated IVUS as the company announced that the Philips Allura Xper FD systems and the Volcano s5i suite of integrated IVUS systems by Volcano Corporation are compatibility, thus supplying clinicians with additional imaging to complement cardiovascular X-ray during catheterization (cath) lab procedures.
Philips recently completed comprehensive testing to confirm compatibility between Allura Xper FD systems and the Volcano s5i suite of integrated IVUS systems and products and is offering IVUS integration because it says that a cath lab without integrated IVUS is a cath lab that limits an interventionalist’s capabilities and is not state-of-the-art. Hence, Philips has announced that any customer in a market with Volcano s5i approval can have an integrated IVUS system installed at the time of the new cath lab construction.
IVUS may be used to optimize the safe placements of drug eluting or bare metal stents or to ensure patients receive a more complete diagnosis of their coronary disease at the time of a diagnostic angiogram.
