Johnson and Johnson reports launch of CartoSound image integration module

11th December 2007

Biosense Webster, a Johnson & Johnson company, has announced the launch of the CartoSound image integration module, which includes the new SoundStar 3D catheter that can be used with the Carto XP EP navigation system.

This solution marks the first integration of intracardiac echocardiography with 3D mapping and can be used by electrophysiologists to detect cardiac arrhythmias.

Using the SoundStar 3D catheter with the Carto XP EP navigation system, the CartoSound Module integrates real-time images from the Siemens Acuson Sequoia and Cypress ultrasound systems.

The catheter uses an embedded position sensor in order to display the location and beam orientation, enhancing the visualisation of images ablation of catheter location.

David J Wilber, from Loyola University Medical Centre, said: “The creation of pre-transeptal anatomical maps of the left cardiac chambers from the right side may diminish the need for detailed pre-procedure imaging studies, reduce procedure times, and facilitate accurate and effective lesion placement.”

He added that this unique solution will facilitate an improvement in the ablation of complex cardiac arrhythmias.

At the Heart Rhythm Society held in May 2007 in Denver, Biosense Webster highlighted its commitment to the field of electrophysiology, with the company boasting a number of products aimed at the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias.
