Despite advances in imaging, electrophysiologists still encounter challenges when performing interventions, including CRM/CRT implants, lead management and extraction, and cardiac ablations. Long procedure times make it crucial to reduce radiation exposure for patients and staff. Additionally, electrophysiologists and staff are managing many different technologies and systems during an ablation procedure, making efficient workflows challenging.
Our image-guided therapy solutions are available in both mobile C-arm and fixed cath lab environments, and are designed to address key unmet needs in EP procedures today. We aim to remove barriers and deliver clinical value where it is needed most, to make EP procedures safer, more efficient and more reproducible. We also offer new ways to image the heart without radiation, using new dielectric imaging technology to give physicians new insights to guide their interventions.
