Co-register real time between angiography and IVUS/OCT with IV-LINQ to obtain a detailed view of the lesion and its exact location in the coronary tree. By using just two angiograms (one with and one without contrast), co-registration can be performed with any IVUS or OCT system.  Key product features
  • Real-time co-registration of angiography with IVUS and OCT
  • Vendor independent: runs with most X-ray, IVUS and OCT systems
  • Bookmarks indicated on IVUS/OCT pullbacks are visualized on the angiogram
 
Key results
  • Co-registered view between angiogram and IVUS / OCT pullback
  • Stent landing zone planned on IVUS/OCT pullback visualized on angiogram
  • Add bookmarks to indicate important vessel sections
