Injection System, Catheters Simplify Imaging

The MEDRAD Avanta Fluid Management Injection System and Vanguard Dx Angiographic Catheters give clinicians a single, flexible system for virtually all cardiovascular imaging procedures.
Avanta is capable of controlled delivery of contrast at low flow rates and low pressures in variable mode to enable injections of small vessels like the coronary arteries. For larger vessels and peripheral imaging needs, the injector can generate high flow rates and high-pressure injections in fixed mode. In addition, saline can be administered at a fixed rate. This flexibility gives healthcare professionals in cardiac catheterization labs and angiography suites a single injection system for multiple imaging applications. MEDRAD Avanta is cleared for sale in the U.S. and Europe.
The Vanguard Dx Angiographic Catheter with patented RadiantFlow tip technology delivers contrast in a distinctive way. Instead of the single jet of contrast generated by traditional catheters, Vanguard Dx’s RadiantFlow tip produces a “cloud” of contrast intended to enhance mixing and distribution.
