February 4, 2016 — Stereotaxis and Philips have signed an addendum pursuant to their existing Development and Cooperation Agreement to facilitate development of a new interface between each company’s most advanced systems for electrophysiology (EP) and interventional cardiology procedures. The new interface will enable interoperability of Stereotaxis’ Niobe ES remote magnetic navigation system with the latest version of Philips’ cardiovascular X-ray system, Allura Xper FD10. This new interface is expected to be available in major global markets in 2016.

The latest release of the Philips Allura Xper FD10 system is a ceiling-suspended cardiovascular X-ray system widely used for EP and other cardiac interventions. The system offers rotational scan capabilities to produce high-resolution, 3-D impressions of cardiac anatomy. It features low-dose X-ray, storage and retrieval of multimodality cardiology information from a central workstation, and high-quality visualization of the position of catheters in real time.
