About Novadaq Technologies

Novadaq Technologies Inc. commercializes real-time imaging and image guidance systems for use in the operating room. With one set of proprietary core technologies, Novadaq's products have multiple applications. Novadaq's SPY System enables cardiac surgeons to diagnose intra-operatively by visually assessing coronary vasculature and bypass graft functionality during the course of heart bypass surgery. The SPY System is also indicated for use during other surgeries, such as cardiovascular, plastic, reconstructive, organ transplant and urological procedures. SPY can be used to visualize blood vessels, tumors, tumor margins and the lymphatic system. Novadaq introduced PINPOINT™, its first minimally invasive imaging system for autofluorescence in October 2007. PINPOINT allows surgeons to differentiate between healthy and cancerous tissue in the lung and other hollow organs. Further expanding its portfolio of minimally invasive products, Novadaq is developing SPYscope which combines the typical features of a standard endoscope with the additional capabilities of SPY imaging. Novadaq is the exclusive United States distributor of PLC Medical's CO(2) HEART LASER System, used in the same cardiac procedures as the SPY System. Novadaq also offers the OPTTX® System, which leverages the company's core imaging technology and is designed for the diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of wet Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD).
