The ACIST HDi® HD IVUS system and ACIST Kodama® HD IVUS catheter take IVUS to the next level with high-definition IVUS image quality, compact interactive console, and superfast pullback.

The Kodama® HD IVUS catheter’s variable-stiffness imaging window, hydrophilic coating, high-fidelity ultrasound transmission, and offset tip design optimize imaging and deliverability.

ACIST KODAMA® HD IVUS CATHETER

Novel, offset tip design
  • Guidewire lumen offset from main catheter improves trackability and control, reducing risk of catheter kinking and guidewire entrapment
  • Facilitates navigation in tortuous anatomies
  • Improves lesion crossability
  • Short tip-to-transducer distance enables more distal assessment

Novel offset tip design of Kodama.

VariFlex imaging window
  • Designed for variable stiffness along imaging window length
  • Flexible distal end for excellent deliverability
  • Stiffer proximal body

Unique VariFlex variable-stiffness imaging window.

Hydrophilic coating
  • Highly lubricious hydrophilic coating
  • Low frictional forces for trackability and control
Optimized imaging
  • High-fidelity ultrasound transmission, even in stiffer sections (due to the VariFlex imaging window), for pure HD image capture
  • Option to choose optimal frequency (40 MHz or 60 MHz*) to balance tissue penetration and higher resolution needs
  • Superfine axial resolution (<40 μm) versus other IVUS catheters (~100 μm) due to the 60 MHz transducer
  • Quad core, super-powerful microprocessor and sophisticated signal-processing algorithms for processing of rich IVUS signal data

*Refers to selectable imaging mode

40mhz
The image quality of standard-definition IVUS can make identification of structures challenging.

60mhz
The increased imaging quality obtained using Kodama and HDi facilitates optimization of stent deployment.
