ACUSON AcuNav V Ultrason Kateteri

Siemens, the pioneer and industry leader in intracardiac echocardiography (ICE), brings to ultrasound the world’s first commercial volume intracardiac catheter, the ACUSON AcuNav™ V ultrasound catheter. With real-time 3D visualization of the inside of the heart, cardiac structures and devices can be seen like never before.

Özellikler ve Faydalar

The increased field of view guides the way for physicians to pioneer new structural heart repairs, EP procedures, and developing modalities.

  • Provides real-time volume / 3D visualization of anatomy and devices
  • Encompasses 3D color flow Doppler allowing for immediate evaluation of outcomes
  • Seamlessly integrates into today’s and tomorrow’s Electrophysiology (EP) and structural heart programs
  • Single operator procedure
  • Ideal platform for guiding procedures and continuous monitoring
  • Eliminates the need for general anesthesia; reducing costs and complications while improving efficiency
  • Dramatically improves patient comfort, especially during long procedures
