Analyze your IVUS, NIRS-IVUS and OCT data quick and easy with CAAS IntraVascular.

CAAS IntraVascular facilitates rapid data transfer from PACS or IVUS/OCT consoles into a study list which provides an overview of your datasets.

A workflow assistant guides the user through the analysis, which makes CAAS IntraVascular very easy to use. Important results are generated on the fly and automatically stored in the report, which can be customized to individual needs. Results can be exported in a pdf report or to a Microsoft Excel compatible xml file.

CAAS IntraVascular is used by the major corelabs and Academic hospitals around the world and is CE marked and FDA 510(k) cleared for both IVUS and OCT.
