Real-time cerebral assessment can provide insights for emboli detection or during perioperative monitoring.
Every year nearly 350,000 patients worldwide present with a PFO and an embolic stroke of undetermined source (ESUS). ¹
The NovaGuide™ Intelligent Ultrasound has a unique emboli detection algorithm that facilitates bubble studies and helps you assess your ESUS patients. ³
“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.”
