St Jude Medical has launched ViewMate Z Intracardiac Ultrasound System and ViewFlex Plus Intracardiac Echocardiography (ICE) Catheter.
The ViewMate Z System is designed for real-time image guidance and visualization of the cardiac anatomy and is able to deliver fast, high-fidelity images that help direct diagnosis or therapy during complex electrophysiology procedures.
The system is compatible with the new ViewFlex Plus ICE Catheter, which offers improved one-handed control, steering angles up to 120° and enhanced tip stability.
The ViewMate Z System, developed and provided through St Jude Medical’s development and distribution agreement with Zonare Medical Systems, offers greater portability and optimizes vital lab space while reducing obstructions in a clinician’s workflow.
St Jude Medical Atrial Fibrillation Division president Jane Song said the ViewMate Z System offers clear visualization of patient anatomy and in turn provides the opportunity for a more effective procedure for the patient.
"It also has an ability to quickly produce exceptional images in a compact, cart-based system, improving on the effectiveness and efficiency of current ICE systems," Song said.
Zonare Medical System’s Zone Sonography enables the ViewMate Z System to provide premium image quality, performance and features, as well as advanced image processing capabilities without the limitations of current systems.
