Deliver an extra measure of certainty in complex procedures, including the treatment of atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. The CARTOSOUND® Module with SOUNDSTAR® Ultrasound Catheter is the ideal addition to your ablation workflow. This 3D ultrasound technology gives you all the benefits of traditional intracardiac echo while enabling full integration of the CARTO®3 System.


Features & Benefits

Visualization F&B image


Visualize and map the complete cardiac anatomy. View the ultrasound image in the familiar CARTO® 3 System environment. The CARTOSOUND® Module allows electrophysiologists to monitor tip-to-tissue contact, tag the transseptal puncture, and draw a map of the esophagus; all of which reduced the need for fluoroscopy.

Always verify catheter tip location using fluoroscopy or IC signals and consult the CARTO® 3 System User Guide regarding recommendations for fluoroscopy use.
