Thank you! A message from our GM, Kristen Knox

Dear Partners,

Over the past months, I have been so grateful for the incredible work the ACIST team has done, especially in light of such unusual 16 months.

COVID-19 caused disruption in our lives, but it also marks a time of adapting and pushing through many obstacles. We have learned a great deal from this experience: how to work remotely, the importance of communicating often -openly and compassionately- and most of all, what our dedicated, innovative and talented team can achieve even during several lockdowns and disruptions.

With pleasure we announce the second ACIST HDi Advanced IVUS Webinar from Erasmus Medical Center, Rotterdam, the Netherlands on Thursday 22 April, 17:00-18:00 CET.
This workshop event is an interactive educational program that is designed for physicians who want to further develop their intravascular ultrasound skills with a specific focus on step-by-step HDi IVUS Guided PCI using the HDi IVUS HD imaging technology.

Distributor Highlight

The final quarter of 2020 was an exciting time for ACIST in Europe as we unveiled our new long-awaited non-hyperemic index dPR– our adenosine-free predictor of ischemia – which now sits alongside Pd/Pa and FFR on our RXI consoles. We’re receiving great feedback from European customers who have started to use dPR, which is in line with the experience of the one distributor who already had dPR for over a year – Al Umnia, our partner in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
