iCross IVUS Catheter Designed for Improved Deliverability
Boston Scientific Corp. offers its iCross Coronary Imaging Catheter, a product designed to improve the deliverability of the company's intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) technology, the iLab Ultrasound Imaging System.
IVUS technology enables physicians to see detailed images inside the heart and coronary arteries. The company said the iCross Catheter would be available immediately in the U.S.
The iCross Catheter features a Bioslide Hydrophilic Coating that has been shown in bench tests to provide a 28 percent improvement in pushability in challenging anatomy.
Boston Scientific launched the catheter in March 2009.
