Volcano Corporation (Volcano) has entered into a non-exclusive, global resale agreement with Siemens Healthcare, a sector of Siemens AG. The agreement provides Siemens Healthcare to resell Volcano-branded s5i IVUS/FFR systems and accessories alongside Siemens' Artis family of X-ray systems.
The Volcano s5i intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and fractional flow reserve (FFR) system is compatible with Artis X-ray offerings. Volcano’s s5i is a component-based system that is incorporated directly into the cath lab, allowing IVUS and FFR to be always on and always ready.
As a technology leader in the cath lab market, Siemens strives to offer the most complete, state-of- the-art cath lab — while focusing on optimal work-flows. Volcano’s s5i IVUS system is uniquely suited to meet those needs, as it interacts seamlessly with the Siemens x-ray systems.
Volcano develops, manufactures and commercializes a broad suite of devices designed to facilitate endovascular procedures, enhance the diagnosis of vascular and structural heart disease and guide optimal therapies.
