Virginia's largest Cardiac Surgery program adopts SPY as standard of care
Date:4/8/2008

Two Hospitals in the System - Sentara Heart Hospital and Sentara Virginia

Beach General Hospital will use SPY routinely

TORONTO, April 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Novadaq(R) Technologies Inc. (TSX: NDQ), a developer of real-time medical imaging and image guidance systems for the operating room, today announced that Sentara Heart Hospital(R) in Norfolk, Virginia and Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital in Virginia Beach, Virginia have fully integrated the SPY(R) Imaging System into its cardiac surgical programs as a routine quality measure and standard of care. Sentara has purchased three SPY Systems for its cardiac operating rooms, where the systems are being used by six cardiac surgeons performing more than 1200 coronary bypass procedures annually.. Sentara's cardiac surgical services rank among the top cardiac programs in the nation and specifically ranks among the top three based upon the key quality metric, "mortality ratio", according to the 2007 America's Best Hospitals Edition of U.S. News & World Report magazine.

"SPY is a perfect fit for Sentara as we are totally committed to continually furthering safety and the quality of care for all heart surgery patients," said Mary Blunt, Corporate Vice President and Administrator at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.

"Based on our experience to date, we believe that SPY has great potential to positively impact both the immediate and long term outcomes of bypass surgery and therefore be accepted as a care standard, not just at our hospital, but by all hospitals performing bypass surgery," said Dr. Lenox Baker, Sentara's Chief of Cardiac Surgery.

The SPY System is the only fluorescent imaging system that enables cardiac surgeons to simply and efficiently visually assess the quality and function of their bypass grafts while the patient is still in the operating room. Use of the SPY system may allow surgeons to make intra-operative decisions that may optimize procedures f
