Advanced Cardiac X-Ray System Addresses Cath Lab Needs


June 30, 2006

Enhancing clinicians’ ability to diagnose and treat heart disease and enable more precise placement of interventional devices such as stents, balloons and filters, the Innova 2100IQ was unveiled at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics annual meeting in Washington, DC. Capable of imaging the finest vessels and anatomy of the heart during placement of interventional devices, the new system is expected to play a critical role in helping clinicians treat a growing number of chronic heart and vascular conditions, including atherosclerosis. Specifically, the Innova 2100IQ is an advanced cardiac X-ray system that enables cardiologists to clearly visualize fine vessels from the heart to the legs both during diagnostic procedures and during placement of interventional devices. Developed in partnership with a team of industry-leading interventional cardiologists, the system was designed based on current clinical needs in the cardiac cath lab.
