Siemens Ultrasound Catheter Opened to Third-Party Systems

May 14, 2008 - Siemens today said it would extend its strategic alliance with Biosense Webster Inc. by opening up the ACUSON AcuNav ultrasound catheter for use on third party ultrasound systems.

In 2006, the two companies announced an agreement giving Biosense Webster the exclusive worldwide rights to distribute Siemens' ACUSON AcuNav ultrasound catheters, as well as a co-development of the technology in the future.

The ACUSON AcuNav ultrasound catheter provides electrophysiologists and interventional cardiologists with real-time diagnostic ultrasound images and Doppler blood flow information from within the heart. Cleared for marketing in 1999, the intracardiac catheter is known for its state-of-the art quality, said Siemens, and one of the only cardiac imaging ultrasound catheters.
