Product Details

DIRECTSENSE™ Technology uses impedance principles to provide a localized measure for deeper insights and critical feedback through out your procedure.

Localized Measure
Understand your catheter proximity and stability to tissue through impedance readings prior to delivering ablation.

Deeper Insights
See how your tissue is heating 2-4mm below the surface.

Critical Feedback
Anticipate how your lesion may be forming and characterize efficiently with the new AutoTag software.
