Volcano IVUS Integrated into GE’s Innova

April 3, 2007 — GE Healthcare and Volcano Corp. have successfully implemented, at multiple sites, Innova IVUS, the world's only fully Integrated IVUS and Cath Lab system. An exclusive collaboration between Volcano Corp. and GE Healthcare made implementation of the fully integrated intravascular ultrasound system for the cath lab and interventional suite possible.

Innova IVUS combines GE's Innova all-digital X-ray cath lab imaging system with Volcano's revolutionary s5i IVUS imaging system. Innova IVUS further optimizes clinical workflow beyond the benefits of the s5i by offering IVUS controls positioned on the Innova Central tableside touchscreen. IVUS is always on and always ready for a physician to use when appropriate at any point in a case.

In addition, Innova IVUS allows for the seamless and automatic data exchange between the IVUS system and Innova allowing for simplified patient data transfer and advanced archiving, integrating the IVUS case into the patient's cath case. This is an exclusive feature offered from Innova IVUS.

The have also announced the successful implementation of an exclusive initiative to include Volcano's IVUS cabling in all new Innova labs. GE Healthcare's decision to include IVUS cabling as a component of every standard Innova installation in the U.S. was announced in late 2006, and was a direct result of the collaboration agreement between GE and Volcano announced earlier in the
year.
