Imaging, Technology Innovations Shared with Bypass Surgeons

Jan. 29, 2007 — Novadaq Technologies Inc. and Apple Inc. presented new technologies to about 100 heart surgeons Sunday evening, Jan. 28, in San Diego. Gathering members of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, whose annual meeting is convening at the San Diego Convention Center through Jan. 31, the program featured Novadaq’s SPY Intra-operative Imaging System, a real-time visual imaging device for use during heart bypass surgery. Apple shared how its technologies are being used in medicine and how the iPod is facilitating personal and portable medical media.

"We are delighted that Apple co-sponsored this event with Novadaq," said Dr. Arun Menawat, President and Chief Executive Officer Novadaq Technologies Inc. "Novadaq's innovations are providing medical imaging for the operating room to improve clinical outcomes and Apple is the leader of innovation in the personal computing industry. It's a synergistic fit between technologies and a perfect opportunity for cardiac surgeons to see and participate in the imaging revolution."

Speakers presented on how new technology is helping doctors use imaging in new ways to help patients and educated cardiac surgeons about Apple technology in medicine.

The SPY System is the first and only fluorescent imaging system FDA cleared for use in coronary artery bypass surgery. SPY enables cardiac surgeons to simply and efficiently assess the quality of blood flow through the heart during surgery.
