“This collaboration brings together the most advanced guidewires and sophisticated imaging and guidance technology, providing an exciting opportunity to improve CTO [chronic total occlusion] in the future,” says Martin Leon, MD, professor of medicine at Columbia University Medical Center (New York). The G-Wire guidewire is a submillimeter tracking sensor that combines Asahi wire technology with MediGuide’s navigation technology and 3-D imaging. It will enable doctors to visually track orientation of the guidewire, along with the 3-D spatial tip position of the wire, while manipulating the device in real time.
