October 27, 2014 – Infraredx Inc. today announced that it has entered into an agreement with HealthTrust, a group purchasing organization. Under the agreement, HealthTrust will offer the Infraredx TVC Imaging System, a novel dual-modality intravascular imaging technology, to its member network of 1,400 acute care facilities. 

The TVC Imaging System is used to guide percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) by integrating near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) to detect lipid-core plaques and intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) to visualize the vessel, including the structure of plaques and the degree of stenosis (narrowing) due to plaque build-up. Lipid-core plaque is a fatty coronary artery plaque known to cause PCI
