This article was originally published in Clinica
Swedish medtech firm Radi Medical Systems is set to integrate its wireless PressureWire Aeris and fractional flow reserve (FFR) technology into GE Healthcare’s Mac-Lab IT haemodynamic recording system. The two firms have partnered in a development, marketing and sales agreement that will, according to Uppsala-based Radi Medical, bring "faster and easier" wireless, FFR assessment into cath lab workflow. The deal will see existing Mac-Lab customers be provided with an upgrade for Radi Medical’s additional applications. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. FFR is an index used to determine the severity of ischaemia in heart vessels. Traditionally, the recording of FFR measurements required the set-up of additional instrumentation, screens and controls.
