Easy to Use Navik 3D Cardiac Mapping System Cleared in U.S.
APN Health, a firm based in Wisconsin, got hold of an FDA clearance to introduce its Navik 3D cardiac mapping system in the U.S. The system provides live tracking of catheters in 3D gathered from fluoroscopic 2D images, and combines that with the electrical cardiac signals to create volumetric maps of the heart.
The system uses existing fluoroscopes and ECG that are available in cath labs already, and so is the only cardiac mapping system on the market that does not rely on specialty equipment to interface with the patient.
The Navik 3D comes with its own display interface plus an iPad that can be carried around the cath lab that also displays the same available imagery including anatomical maps, cardiac electrical activation maps, and cardiac voltage maps.
