About Novadaq Technologies Inc.
Novadaq develops and markets real-time fluorescence imaging systems for the operating room. The company’s core product, the SPY imaging system, is installed in approximately 100 hospitals in the United States. According to over 40 published journal articles, surgeons use SPY imaging for guidance during complex procedures to visualize vascular blockages; assess tissue perfusion; identify cancerous tumors and delineate margins; and visualize relevant lymph nodes for removal. Studies have shown conclusively that use of SPY imaging in plastic reconstruction, gastrointestinal and cardiac surgery procedures improves clinical outcomes and reduces costs of complications, demonstrating significant patient and economic value. Novadaq has an alliance with Intuitive Surgical in late stage development to incorporate SPY imaging into the da Vinci robotic system. Novadaq’s minimally invasive imaging system is also in clinical development stage.
