ChromaFlo imaging

ChromaFlo is available on Philips Volcano Core integrated, Core Mobile, s5, and s5i systems and provides easy assessment of stent apposition, lumen size, and more. ChromaFlo imaging highlights blood flow red at the touch of a button.
ChromaFlo is appropriate for peripheral and coronary vessels, including left main, bifurcations, superficial femoral artery, and iliac. It is designed to make lumen size and stent apposition instantly recognizable and helps identify branches, dissections, thrombus, and plaque distribution in bifurcations. ChromaFlo is compatible with Philips Volcano’s Eagle Eye Platinum plug-and-play digital IVUS catheters and Visions PV .018 and .014 catheters.

Simple to use

Simply press the button on the console to activate ChromaFlo.
