Volcano Announces Installed Base Growth Milestone
Date:12/15/2009

he only multi-modality system capable of doing digital IVUS, high frequency rotational IVUS, VH® IVUS tissue characterization, ChromaFlo and FFR all on the same console today, and a path for additional modalities like OCT, Spectroscopy, Image Guided Therapy Balloons, and Forward Looking IVUS in the future.

These two prestigious societies 'upgraded' the level of evidence in support of FFR from level B to level A largely based on the strong FAME study data. We look to become a leader in the FFR market the same way we have in IVUS, by having the best portfolio of FFR wires and using accelerated installed base placements to fuel market share growth. It took us over fifteen years to place 800 earlier generation FFR systems worldwide. In the last 12 months, we have enabled FFR on over 1200 s5 and s5i systems through either upgrades or new placements, more than doubling the installed base of FFR capable systems. This is the power of our platfor
