About Novadaq Technologies Inc.

Enabling medical professionals with clinically relevant, point-of-care imaging solutions to enhance the lives of patients and their caregivers, while reducing health care costs, is NOVADAQ's global mission. SPY fluorescence imaging technology provides surgeons with real- time visualization, leading to improved outcomes and reduced costs without exposing the patient to radiation. More than 130 peer-reviewed publications demonstrate that the use of SPY imaging technologies during complex surgery and diagnostic procedures, leads to lower rates of post-operative complications and lower hospital costs.

SPY Imaging Systems are United States Food and Drug Administration 510(k) cleared for use in seven surgical specialties. The endoscopic version of SPY called PINPOINT, combines the capabilities of SPY Imaging with high definition ("HD") visible light visualization offered by conventional endoscopes. LUNA is used to assess perfusion in patients being treated for non- healing wounds. In December 2014, NOVADAQ and LifeNet Health jointly announced the signing of a multi-year agreement appointing NOVADAQ the exclusive worldwide distributor of LifeNet Health's DermACELL acellular tissue products for wound and breast reconstruction surgery.
