By applying robotics and artificial intelligence to cerebral ultrasound, NovaSignal uniquely captures blood flow data in real time. The NovaSignal Platform empowers the clinical team with critical, real-time information about cerebral blood flow to guide diagnosis and improve patient outcomes.
Every year nearly 800,000 people in the US have a stroke. Around 10 to 20 percent of strokes are due to carotid artery disease and more than 100,000 carotid revascularization procedures are performed every year. Without the help of cerebral blood flow monitoring, inadequate blood supply, dangerous embolization, and hyperperfusion can go unseen by the surgical team. Download the case to learn how the real-time blood flow data provided by the NovaSignal Platform allows clinicians to immediately respond to perioperative concerns.
Access to real-time data can prevent disability or death. With more than 200 clinical studies published annually, indications for the use of cerebral ultrasound (also referred to as TCD) are expanding.
The prevalence of PFO among the cryptogenic stroke population is ~40% to 50%. ¹
Vasospasm has been reported in as many as 70% of patients after a subarachnoid hemorrhage. ³
It is estimated that every year up to 600,000 patients in the U.S. suffer a stroke during, or after, a cardiovascular procedure. ⁵
A comprehensive solution designed to seamlessly integrate into existing clinical practice. The NovaSignal Platform empowers the clinical team with critical information about cerebral blood flow to guide diagnosis and improve patient outcomes.
Offering secure, cloud-based access to dynamic exam data, NovaGuide View improves coordination of clinical teams, reduces time to intervention, and is a critical piece of the overall patient assessment.
With cutting-edge AI and advanced robotics, the NovaGuide 2 Intelligent Ultrasound uniquely captures blood flow data in real-time to identify brain illnesses and diseases that present as changes in cerebral blood flow.
NovaKit 2 provides required essentials to ensure exams are safe, comfortable, and personalized for each patient.
NovaCare provides certified service and support for the NovaSignal Platform, including 24/7 remote support, IT integration, on-site servicing, loaner devices, and more.
NovaSignal is committed to advancing patient care through innovative, evidence-based solutions for patients and providers.
“Integrating the NovaGuide gives clinicians a chance to look inside the brain at blood flow patterns in real time and rapidly identify physiological changes associated with neurological disorders, enabling efficient diagnosis and triage for treatment.”

“It is remarkable that a diagnostic machine used to study the brain could give us insight into the pathophysiology of a pulmonary disease. The benefit of using this particular system was that automated monitoring allowed providers to assess cerebral blood flow while minimizing the potential for exposure to COVID-19.”
