Siemens extends Biosense Webster ultrasound catheter agreement

Siemens Healthcare USA : 19 May, 2008  (Company News)
Siemens Healthcare is extending its strategic alliance with Biosense Webster by opening up the Acuson AcuNav ultrasound catheter for use on third party ultrasound systems.
In 2006, the two companies announced an agreement giving Biosense Webster the exclusive worldwide rights to distribute Siemens' Acuson AcuNav Ultrasound catheters, as well as a co-development of the technology in the future.

The Acuson AcuNav Ultrasound Catheter provides electrophysiologists and interventional cardiologists with high-quality, real-time diagnostic Ultrasound images and Doppler blood flow information from within the heart. Cleared for marketing in 1999, the intracardiac Catheter is known for its state-of-the art quality and is currently the world's only cardiac imaging Ultrasound catheter.

'We are pleased to open up the use of the Acuson AcuNav technology to other than our own Ultrasound systems,' said Klaus Hambuchen, chief executive officer, Ultrasound, Siemens Medical Solutions USA. 'This will enable healthcare providers to improve the quality of care for an increased number of patients by coupling their Ultrasound equipment with advanced intracardiac echocardiography (ICE).'

Introducing an open standard for the use of ICE means that this innovative technology is available for a growing cardiac patient population with the goal of making the Acuson AcuNav technology a standard of care in electrophysiology and interventional cardiology.
