GE partners with LightLab

GE Healthcare of Chalfont St. Giles, U.K., has inked a partnership with optical coherence tomography (OCT) technology developer LightLab Imaging of Westford, MA.

The companies will combine their technologies to enhance workflow between GE's Innova cardiovascular angiography system and LightLab's C7-XR OCT system.

With OCT, a small optical imaging catheter is inserted into a vessel where near-infrared light waves reflect off the internal microstructure within tissue or vessel walls. The reflected waves create extremely high-resolution cross-sectional images from within the artery to aid in disease evaluation and the management of targeted therapies.
