GARDEN CITY, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ImaCor, Inc., the developer of the first and only hemodynamic transesophageal echocardiography (HTEE™) management system, today announced that the ClariTEE® probe and Zura™ platform have received CE Mark certification, allowing for the commercialization of these solutions in Europe.
The ClariTEE is a revolutionary miniaturized TEE probe specifically designed for easy, available, and accurate hemodynamic assessment of high-acuity patients that uniquely remains indwelling for up to 72 hours. Current U.S. users of the ClariTEE and Zura - which has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration - include physicians at world-renowned academic medical centers such as Columbia New York-Presbyterian Hospital, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, and Barnes-Jewish Hospital.
“We welcome this opportunity to work with European clinicians who have already expressed substantial interest in using HTEE, the first technology that allows continuous availability of TEE in intensive care units,” said Scott L. Roth, M.D., Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer of ImaCor. “Given the high level of ultrasound integration in European critical care, I expect HTEE to make a rapid and significant impact.”
“HTEE leads to optimal patient outcomes and appropriate resource utilization,” said Chad Wagner, M.D., the director of Vanderbilt University Medical Center's Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (CVICU). “Sharing HTEE technology with the European medical and scientific community will have a profound effect on future advances in this field.”
