Volcano Announces U.S. and European Launch of Rotational IVUS and Integrated FFR
Date:3/28/2008

al wanted to equip a new lab with all three technologies, they would have to acquire three separate consoles, each with a different measurement modality, training requirements and data storage protocols. The Volcano s5i can now accommodate the three primary intravascular diagnostic tools in regular use by cardiologists today (high frequency rotational IVUS, fast and simple phased array IVUS, and pressure-based FFR guidewires) on a single platform, making modern day imaging consoles more flexible than ever before.

Joe Burnett, associate vice president of marketing for Volcano, said, "We believe that IVUS is one of the fastest growing market segments in interventional cardiology today. Our internal market model suggests that worldwide IVUS revenue grew approximately 15% in 2007. More and more physicians are augmenting their daily interpretation of angiography with this more exacting, precise technology. IVUS and FFR can provide objective measurements of lesion severity and stent expansion, thus removing some of the inherent guess work surrounding 2D x-ray images. We believe that having these modalities available on a single integrated system can only further adoption of these important therapy guidance tools."

Training and Education

As part of the s5-Revo and s5-FFR market introduction, Volcano is also launching Volcano TLC, a comprehensive on-site education program available to current and future Volcano customers, targeted to increase IVUS and FFR awareness and build staff proficiency with these new integrated systems. Volcano TLC (Training and Learning Clinics) offers a combination of keynote speaker presentations, physician proctorships, hands-on system training, guided proficiency tools and workflow troubleshooting, all designed to leverage modern-day IVUS and FFR technology, and to allow physicians to acquire these precise diagnostic measurements in less time than ever before.

To kick-off the Volcano TLC program, John McB. Hodgson, M.
