Anything else and you are leaving valuable data on the table.
The Dualpro™ IVUS+NIRS Catheter offers clarity, depth and certainty. With standard IVUS, practitioners currently make trade-offs between image clarity and signal penetration. These compromises can make a difference when trying to accurately assess a vessel and interpret the image for optimal treatment. The Dualpro operates at a frequency bandwidth of 35-65 MHz, offering a single, uncompromised image.
The Extended Bandwidth technology harmonizes multiple signal frequencies. The result is a sharp image of the complete vessel that allows for easy identification of the lumen, plaque and vessel structure. The composite display provides a clear, easy-to-interpret map for identifying high-risk patients with high-risk plaques.

with the Dualpro IVUS
Dualpro™ is the only intravascular imaging catheter on the market today utilizing extended bandwidth IVUS technology. By emitting and carefully processing a broad band of frequencies, the Dualpro IVUS brings you best-in-class image resolution without compromising depth of field.
With a crisper IVUS image of the vessel structure you can more easily identify the degree of stenosis, visualize and quantify plaque burden, determine the landing zone for a stent and assure proper stent deployment.
