Business Summary 

Volcano Corporation designs, develops, manufactures, and commercializes a suite of precision guided therapy tools primarily to physicians, nurses, and technicians worldwide. The company operates in two segments, Medical and Industrial. It offers consoles that are electronic systems, which process the signals received from intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) catheters and fractional flow reserve (FFR) wires. The company’s IVUS products include single-procedure disposable phased array and rotational IVUS imaging catheters; and ChromaFlo stent apposition analysis technology that uses sequential IVUS frames to differentiate circulating blood from stationary or anchored tissue. Its FFR products comprise pressure and flow consoles, and single-procedure disposable pressure and flow guide wires, which are used to measure the pressure and flow characteristics of blood around plaque enabling physicians to gauge the plaque’s physiological impact on blood flow and pressure. In addition, the company develops and manufactures optical monitors for the telecommunication industry; laser and non-laser light sources; optical engines used in the medical optical coherence topography imaging systems and advanced photonic components; and sub-systems used in spectroscopy and other industrial applications. Further, it is developing Crux VCF System that features the Crux IVC filter, a retrievable filter intended to prevent recurrent pulmonary embolism; and Pioneer Plus Re-Entry Catheter, which enables the crossing of sub-total, total, and chronic total occlusions in the peripheral vasculature. The company sells its products through direct sales force and distributors, as well as through supply and distribution agreements with third parties. Volcano Corporation was founded in 2000 and is headquartered in San Diego, California.
