August 19, 2015 – Corindus Vascular Robotics Inc. and Unfors RaySafe Inc., a Fluke Biomedical Company, announced a distribution agreement allowing Corindus to offer the RaySafe i2 real-time radiation dose monitoring system in conjunction with the CorPath System. This alignment enables catheterization lab physicians and staff to better protect themselves from, and monitor for, excessive radiation exposure.

The interventional cardiology field is increasingly concerned about the cumulative effects of radiation exposure on physicians and cath lab staff as more studies emerge and stories of individuals who have been forced to leave practice become more prevalent. Top of FormBottom of FormThe The 95 percent radiation exposure reduction afforded by the CorPath System’s radiation shielded cockpit increases protection for interventional cardiologists, while the RaySafe i2 badge worn by cath lab workers displays radiation exposure levels in real-time; this allows the team to be more aware of exposure levels and take steps to minimize exposure, while continuing to deliver a high standard of care.

Spectrum Health System, based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, is one of the first facilities in the United States to install and jointly utilize the CorPath System and RaySafe i2. “We take significant measures to protect our patients, and through the addition of these products, we can do the same for our physicians and cath lab staff,” stated Ryan Madder, M.D., interventional cardiologist at Spectrum Health. “Having integrated the products into my daily practice, I am more aware of both my own exposure levels and that of my team. I appreciate how these technologies can significantly change our behaviors and put us in a safer position to perform procedures.”
