Volcano Corporation and Siemens Healthcare Announce Global Resale Agreement for Volcano IVUS/FFR Systems
Date:8/25/2009

SAN DIEGO and ERLANGEN, GERMANY, Aug. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Volcano Corporation (Nasdaq: VOLC), a leader in the development, manufacturing and sales of products for the diagnosis of coronary and peripheral artery disease, announced today that it has entered into a non-exclusive, global resale agreement with Siemens Healthcare, a sector of Siemens AG (NYSE: SI). Under this agreement, Siemens will resell Volcano-branded s5i IVUS/FFR systems and accessories alongside Siemens' Artis family of X-ray systems.

The Volcano s5i intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and fractional flow reserve (FFR) system is compatible with Artis X-ray offerings. Volcano's s5i is a component-based system that is incorporated directly into the cath lab, allowing IVUS and FFR to be always on and always ready.

As a technology leader in the cath lab market, Siemens strives to offer the most complete, state-of- the-art cath lab -- while focusing on optimal work-flows. Volcano's s5i IVUS system is uniquely suited to meet those needs, as it interacts seamlessly with the Siemens x-ray systems.

Physicians are recognizing the value of IVUS and FFR as an integral part of daily percutaneous coronary interventions. Volcano's IVUS technology gives clinicians the ability to visualize vessel geometry, understand plaque composition and make measurements for stent sizing. Volcano's FFR technology allows physicians to make a physiological measurement of a lesion to assess the requirement for treatment. Volcano's s5i system uniquely integrates both technologies into the cath lab on one system.
