About Novadaq Technologies Inc.

Novadaq develops and commercializes real-time imaging systems for use in the operating room. Novadaq's SPY® Imaging System uniquely enables surgeons to visualize blood vessels, tumors, tumor margins, blood flow and the lymphatic system in real-time during surgery. This core technology is now being applied across multiple surgical markets such as cardiac, plastic and reconstructive, urological, general, micro and transplant. The PINPOINT™ System for endoscopic autofluorescence imaging is Novadaq's first minimally invasive product. PINPOINT allows surgeons to differentiate between healthy and cancerous tissue in the lung and other hollow organs. To expand its portfolio of minimally invasive products, Novadaq is developing SPY scope which combines the typical features of a standard endoscope with the capabilities of SPY Imaging. The ability to visualize tissue perfusion and flow through vessels, ducts and the lymphatic system adds another dimension to the images available to surgeons during endoscopic surgical procedures. Novadaq also leverages its core technology to offer the OPTTX® System, which is designed for the diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of wet Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD). Novadaq is the exclusive United States distributor of PLC Medical's CO2 HEART LASER™ System, which is used in the same cardiac procedures as the SPY Imaging System.
