The Dualpro™ IVUS+NIRS Imaging Catheter Kit is a single-use, disposable coronary catheter and accessory kit designed for use only with the Makoto™ Intravascular Imaging System (TVC-MC10). This dual-modality intravascular imaging catheter combines 50 MHz Extended Bandwidth IVUS transducer and laser-based near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) for simultaneous acquisition of vessel structure and plaque composition data — a single catheter, a single pullback, with two sets of data — and also features a durable hydrophilic coating for improved deliverability.
Dualpro™ offers clarity, depth and certainty. With standard IVUS, practitioners currently make trade-offs between image clarity and signal penetration. These compromises can make a difference when trying to accurately assess a vessel and interpret the image for optimal treatment. Dualpro™ operates at a frequency bandwidth of 35-65 MHz, offering a single, uncompromised image.
The Extended Bandwidth technology harmonizes multiple signal frequencies. The result is a sharp image of the complete vessel that allows for easy identification of the lumen, plaque, and vessel structure. The composite display provides a clear, easy-to-interpret map for identifying high-risk patients with high-risk plaques.
