NAMSR: NEWS- Intravascular imaging is about to become a lot easier for Boston Scientific customers
Boston Scientific has launched a superior and more powerful imaging device that could also lessen confusing workflows, reduce procedure times, and ease image interpretation.
The company has restructured and improved the user interface and workflow of the iLab system, which includes an enunciating ceiling or wall arm, two 19-inch display monitors, an imaging PC, an archiving PC, thermal printer, a tableside controller, and a motor drive unit with a power supply.
The Polaris system will support the company’s intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) catheters, as well as coronary, peripheral and intra-cardiac echo devices. It was also designed to accommodate imaging products that the company has yet to release, including a fractional flow reserve (FFR) wire, additional IVUS catheters, and updated software and system control tools, the company said.
The Polaris system has CE Mark and FDA 510(k) clearance.
Last week, Boston Scientific announced gaining the CE Mark for its 25-mm Lotus aortic valve. Earlier this week, it announced FDA approval for its Rebel bare-metal stent.
