Clinical Need

Therapeutic advances in electrophysiology and structural heart procedures present new challenges in procedural guidance underserved by current methods of imaging.

Real-time 3D (4D) imaging plays a critical role in the adoption of increasingly complex structural heart procedures. To guide LAA closure, mitral valve repair, and tricuspid valve repair procedures, physicians currently rely on 4D TEE which requires a dedicated echocardiographer to navigate the TEE probe and generate the cardiac images.

4D imaging on an ICE platform puts control of the image generation in the hands of interventionalist, allowing him/her to guide the imaging catheter throughout the procedure. In addition, 4D ICE allows structural heart procedures to be performed under conscious sedation and offers potential cost savings.

In the United States, 2D ICE is currently used in ~85% of electrophysiology (EP) ablation cases. As EP ablation technologies continue to evolve and procedures become increasingly complex, there is a growing need for advanced intracardiac imaging beyond the capabilities of traditional 2D ICE.

4D ICE offers all of the imaging capabilities of 2D ICE with the added spatial benefits of real-time intracardiac 3D guidance. This enhanced visualization allows physicians to better assess complex cardiac structures with the potential to improve outcomes and reduce procedure times and fluoroscopy exposure.
