Navigation Training

Navigation training exercises to help users understand the anatomy and device selection.


Visual Aids

Visual aids provide details not available in real cases to enhance the learning experience.


3D Visualizations

Increase didactic learning with 3D visualizations to show underlying anatomy and lesions.

Interventional cardiology FFR

Physiology Modalities

Physiology modalities FFR & RFR allow users to investigate lesions and interpret pressure curves to help plan treatment strategies.


Expert Guidance

Built in step-by-step expert guidance in all cases encourages self-learning without the need for proctoring.

Proctor App 720x480

Proctor App

Companion proctor app for iPad provides the ability to customize scenarios and trigger real-time complications for case expansion & increased interaction between proctor and trainees.



Detailed metrics and benchmarking tools allow users to track progress to help optimize training and identify areas that need improvement.
