ACIST CVi™ Instruction Videos Playlist (US)

The ACIST CVi® Contrast Delivery System is designed for the precise administration of radiopaque contrast media during angiographic procedures. It delivers contrast media to a catheter at a flow rate determined by the user. The hand controller and other necessary items are included in angiographic consumable kits. The CVi® system is easily installed, serviced, and upgraded due to its modular design. It is comprised of the injector head, control panel, power supply, and other essential components. Keep reading to gain further insights into the ACIST CVi® and its utilization.


“The CVi® is intended to be used for the controlled infusion of radiopaque contrast media for angiographic procedures. The CVi® System is an angiographic injection system used in interventional cardiology, radiology, or intravascular surgical procedures utilizing an endovascular technique. The CVi® System supplies radiopaque contrast media to a catheter at a user determined variable flow rate that can be instantaneously and continuously varied.”

HD IVUS Guidance in PCI as the standard of Care, Profs Hammerstingl and Volz

Clinical data shows that routine use of intravascular imaging, such as IVUS, improves clinical outcomes of patients undergoing PCI. It delivers critical anatomical information pre- and post-stenting. Thereby, HD-IVUS enables “high-precision” interventional therapy. In this video, Prof Christoph Hammerstingl and Dr. Alexander Völz from Eduardus Hospital Cologne (Germany) talk about why intravascular imaging should become the standard of care, not just for complex PCI procedural guidance.

Watch this video to hear from Dr. Chadi Alraies, Medical Director Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory, Director Interventional Cardiology Research at DMC Heart Hospital in Detroit Michigan, about the usability and benefits of the ACIST CVi® Contrast Delivery System. He speaks about how it is easy to set up, understand, and use. Specifically, Dr, Alraies talks about “turning the room” in between procedures and how CVi® decreases turnaround time and the amount of contrast used in the cath lab. Check out the video above to learn more about CVi® and its advantages, especially in a busy lab.

DAIC Webinar: Improving Patient Outcomes and Reducing Contrast Utilization in the Cath Lab

Click here to watch the video.

This webinar features Dr. Khuddus, an Interventional Cardiologist at HCA Florida North Florida North Florida Hospital and the Cardiac and Vascular Institute in Gainesville, Florida, and Dr. Doshi, an Interventional Cardiologist at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. Dr. Khuddus and Dr. Doshi walk through the use of the ACIST CVi™ Contrast Delivery System and the ACIST HDi® HD IVUS System to manage contrast usage and ultimately improve patient outcomes. To do this ACIST’s technologies strive to reduce contrast usage, improve Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) rates, and deliver optimized patient outcomes. Watch the video above to learn about the benefits of implementing a variable rate contrast delivery system in the cath lab, the clinical benefits of HD IVUS utilization and how to implement standardized workflow for effective use, and how HD IVUS and physiological testing can be used to improve patient outcomes and reduce contrast utilization.


“The injector does four things. One, it makes the procedure much easier for the operator. Two, it can help reduce procedure time. Three, it can definitively help decrease contrast usage. Four, it has built in safety mechanisms to ensure that nothing is injected that we don’t want injected. The device as a whole really makes any procedure safer, more efficacious, and faster” – Dr. Doshi

In partnership with Radcliffe Cardiology, ACIST recorded a case discussion with Dr. Ali, an Interventional Cardiologist at St. Francis Hospital & Health Center, Dr. Daemen, an Interventional Cardiologist at the Erasmus University Medical Center, Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and Dr. Jeremias, Associate Director, Cardiac Cath Lab at St. Francis Hospital and Heart Center, at EuroPCR 2023. The case covers the use of various ACIST products and the value they bring to the cath lab. These include ACIST CVi™ Contrast Delivery System, ACIST HDi® HD IVUS System and Kodama® HD IVUS Catheter, and ACIST RXi® Rapid Exchange FFR System along with Navvus®II Rapid Exchange MicroCatheter. CVi® is known for its ability to manage contrast dose and waste, but this case discussion also incorporates the roles imaging and physiology play in the larger contrast management conversation. Overall, its an informative video exploring the use of ACIST’s advanced technologies and best practices in coronary interventions. Watch the video above to hear more.
