February 19, 2013 — Biosense Webster showcased its portfolio of cutting edge innovative electrophysiology technologies at the 2013 Boston AF meeting.
The new CartoAlara Module for the company’s Carto 3 System was introduced at Boston AF. The CartoAlara Module seamlessly combines a fluoroscopy image and Carto 3 System maps into a single view and helps lower fluoroscopy levels to as low as reasonably achievable. Complementing the accuracy of the Carto System proprietary magnetic navigation technology, the CartoAlara Module is an open architecture technology designed to work with a variety of industry leading fluoroscopy systems allowing customers to convert many of their legacy systems with minimal effort.
“This new advance allows electrophysiologists to navigate with confidence from one integrated view,” said Shlomi Nachman, worldwide president, Biosense Webster. “The safety of our physician customers and their patients is very important to us and we are leading an industry-wide initiative with the goal of dramatically reducing fluoroscopy use in the EP lab without compromising safety.”
Combined with the Carto System advanced catheter location (ACL) technology, fast anatomical mapping (FAM) capability and its Connection of Choice functionality, the CartoAlara Module adds a new dimension to the Carto System’s established electroanatomical mapping accuracy, reinforcing user trust and confidence.
The CartoAlara Module is commercially available in the United States and Europe starting in February 2013.
