Executive Summary

MediGuide has CE marked its Medical Positioning System (MPS) and MPS-enabled Guided Measurement Catheter (GMC) for sale in Europe. The MPS is a navigation system designed to be used in various minimally-invasive procedures. When equipped on an X-ray imaging cath lab system, the MPS can aid the intravascular evaluation of coronary anatomy. It allows real-time tip positioning and navigation of a diagnostic or therapeutic invasive device (if equipped with an MPS sensor) for coronary or cardiac intervention. The GMC, also CE marked by the Haifa, Israel company, is the first MPS-enabled catheter. It is intended to be used in conjunction with conventional X-ray angiography systems equipped with MPS, to enable tip positioning and navigation, quantitative length measurement, 3D lumen reconstruction, qualitative 3D foreshortening indication and landmarking in patients who are candidates for coronary angiography and/or percutaneous coronary intervention.
