Product info & videos

Product Details
Find detailed product specs, directions for use, MRI compatibility, device longevity information, and more resources for the LUX-Dx ICM System.

Engineered for Advanced Control
The Boston Scientific research and development team discusses their design process and how they developed an ICM that addresses the shortcomings of existing devices, reduces patient burden and accelerates critical decision making.

Dual-Stage Algorithm
Find out how the dual-stage algorithm is designed to reject false positives and see performance results across multiple cardiac arrythmias for the LUX-Dx ICM System.

LUX-Dx ICM Overview Video
This quick video provides an overview of the LUX-Dx ICM System and how it is redefining the ICM with a dual-stage algorithm and remote programming.

LATITUDE Clarity System
See how the LATITUDE Clarity System helps you streamline your workflow and enhance patient care.

Physician Brochure
Get an overview of the LUX-Dx ICM System, including the intuitive insertion procedure, dual-stage algorithm, remote programming capabilities, myLUX™ patient app, and LATITUDE Clarity Data Management System.
Signal Quality Brochure
Find out how the S-ECG signal quality of the LUX-Dx ICM is designed to emulate Lead II and puts the power of astoundingly clear signals in your hands, helping to achieve more efficient and confident event reviews.

Atrial Fibrillation (AF) Algorithm Video
Find out how the AF algorithm monitors R-R variability to detect potential AF rhythms. And how the verification stage uses an adaptive morphology, noise discrimination and pattern detectors to identify and reject false positives.

Atrial Tachycardia (AT) Algorithm Video
See how the LUX-Dx ICM uses rate, duration and built-in flexibility to detect only high-rate rhythms sustained for a prolonged period of time, or to detect short duration AT/Atrial Flutter. The AT algorithm duration is independent of the AF algorithm duration.

Pause Algorithm Video
Watch the video to see how the LUX-Dx ICM is designed to monitor R-R duration to detect pause episodes and, in the verification stage, reject false positives by using a dynamic noise-reduction filter, signal-to-noise ratio and loss-of-signal conditions.

Tachycardia Algorithm Video
Find out how the tachycardia algorithm uses traditional ICD-based rate and duration parameters during the detection stage. The verification stage uses a machine-learning-based decision tree to identify potential tachy episodes. If they are not within the rate zone, they’re rejected as noise.

Bradycardia Algorithm Video
Watch the video to find out how the bradycardia algorithm helps reject false positives due to under-sensing. First, the algorithm uses rate and duration parameters during the detection stage to identify potential brady episodes. Then during the verification stage, episodes are further examined for under-sensing before being rejected.
