What is the Intravascular Imaging Innovation Device?

The NMPA says in the notice that, “the product consists of a console (ADM) and a patient interface module (PIM) in conjunction with a single-use intravascular imaging catheter connection for intravascular imaging of coronary arteries during percutaneous coronary interventions.

“The imaging catheter is equipped with an acoustic probe and an optical probe at the far end, which can automatically acquire images and feed them back to the image processing module to achieve synchronous registration of intravascular ultrasound and optical interference tomography.

This product is superior to similar marketed products and can realize the above two imaging at the same time, synchronously meet the doctor’s requirements for resolution and penetration, simplify the doctor’s operation, and improve the accuracy and safety of imaging.”
