BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--InfraReDx, Inc., a medical device company committed to advancing the diagnosis and management of coronary artery and other vascular diseases, today announced the launch of its TVC Imaging System™, an enhanced version of the LipiScan™ IVUS Coronary Imaging System. The TVC Imaging System is a first-in-class intravascular imaging system that holds the potential to revolutionize the management of coronary artery disease by providing information that is critical for evaluating vessel structure and composition, also known as true vessel characterization. The system’s improved image resolution delivers better clinical detail, providing more reliable vessel interpretation and assessment.
