About Infraredx, Inc.

Infraredx, Inc. is a privately-funded medical device company dedicated to helping provide practitioners with the information needed for enhanced clinical decision making in treating coronary artery disease. The company is committed to improving the safety and efficacy of coronary stenting and ultimately serving as part of a strategy to prevent initial coronary events. Through its TVC Imaging Systemâ„¢, Infraredx is changing the way coronary artery disease is diagnosed and treated. The TVC Imaging System is the only intravascular imaging system that enables true vessel characterization through simultaneous structural and compositional imaging data obtained in a single pullback. Through the use of both intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) technologies, the system helps interventional cardiologists identify which patients are prone to stenting complications by assessing not only the degree of stenosis, but also the presence of lipid core plaque. Founded in 1998, Infraredx is headquartered in Burlington, Mass. Infraredx, Inc. has been sold to Nipro. For more information, visit www.infraredx.com.
