Silicon Valley Medical Instruments, Inc. (SVMI), today announced its intention to demonstrate its high-definition intravascular imaging technology at the TCT 2010 Symposium to be held in Washington, D.C. in late September. SVMI is developing a new generation of ultrasound-based, intravascular imaging systems that elevate both image resolution and user convenience to new standards. Interventional Cardiologists, in particular, will appreciate easier and faster image interpretation associated with higher frequency operation and touch screen operation. The Company’s intra-coronary catheter additionally provides outstanding handling, accessability, and reliability features. Dr. Gary Mintz from Columbia University in NY recently commented that the images were “stunning”.

Clinical studies with the SVMI system are planned for outside-the-US sites in early 2011. The Company’s products utilize a Linux-based operating system that, in conjunction with state-of-the-art electronic components, provide dramatic improvements in system speed and processing power compared to current competitor products. An ultra-high resolution touch screen is utilized for image display and measurement interaction, providing ultimate user convenience.
