U.S. FDA approves system that pairs OCT, IVUS imaging

May 7, 2018
The intravascular imaging system has the capability to acquire both IVUS and OCT images using a single catheter.

Conavi Medical (Toronto, ON, Canada) has received U.S. FDA clearance for its Novasight Hybrid System, which enables simultaneous imaging of coronary arteries with both intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT). IVUS or OCT are typically used by interventional cardiologists to image coronary anatomy during angioplasty and stenting procedures.

The intravascular imaging system has the capability to acquire both IVUS and OCT images using a single catheter, says Brian Courtney, president and CEO of Conavi Medical. The system provides the resolution and contrast of OCT with the larger field of view of IVUS, and displays the images in a precisely co-registered fashion, he explains.
