About Novadaq Technologies Inc.

Novadaq develops and commercializes real-time imaging and image guidance 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 to and 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. Expanding its portfolio of minimally invasive products, Novadaq's SPY scope combines the typical features of a standard endoscope with the capabilities of SPY imaging. The SPY scope may unlock the full potential of certain minimally invasive surgeries by effectively addressing the limited field of vision that has until now constrained surgeons. 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.
