Fractional Flow Reserve and Mac-Lab IT integration


Radi Medical Systems and GE Healthcare are collaborating to integrate Radi’s Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR) and PressureWire Aeris technologies into GE’s Mac-Lab IT hemodynamic recording system.

Measurements from the FFR system, an index for functional severity of coronary stenosis, will be used in the cathlab workflow and all procedural results will be stored into GE’s existing data archives. Current users of the GE Mac-Lab IT will be able to upgrade to add this functionality to existing systems.

Dr Jasvinder Singh, Associate Professor of Medicine, Washington School of Medicine, St Louis, MO, commented, “With FFR fully integrated into our GE Mac-Lab IT, I’ll be able to make the best treatment options immediately available to my patients using equipment we already have, without any installation of additional instrumentation, screen or controls.”
