    KODEX-EPD system for cardiac imaging and mapping

    KODEX-EPD system for cardiac imaging and mapping

    Precise and personalized. Practical and pioneering. 

    ERHA Symposium

    The KODEX-EPD system offers enhanced imaging and mapping capabilities for RF ablation, including the Tissue Engagement Viewer

    The KODEX-EPD system is an open platform that works with any qualified EP catheter and uses dielectric imaging to give physicians new insights toguide their interventions. It has been developed to address key unmet needs in EP procedures today. It shows real-time HD imaging, delivering true anatomy, and creates voltage and activation maps

    KODEX-EPD uses dielectric sensing to build anatomy, discriminate cardiac structures, and assess tissue properties. Dielectric imaging creates high definition 3D images of a patient’s cardiac structures in real time, without using ionizing radiation or contrast media. This technology overcomes many limitations of other technologies and offers benefits for both cryo and RF ablation procedures.
    Discover how KODEX EPD supports optimal cardiac care throughout a patient’s journey.


    Discover how KODEX-EPD can enhance your procedural efficiency and patient care.

    The KODEX-EPD system is a completely new approach to cardiac imaging and mapping that has been developed to address key unmet needs in electrophysiology (EP) procedures today. It is an open system that works with any validated EP catheter. KODEX-EPD uses dielectric imaging technology to visualize highly detailed cardiac anatomy in real-time and helps physicians identify anatomical variations. As a result, KODEX-EPD has the potential to greatly simplify navigation and support personalized ablation planning and delivery, with less dependency on fluoroscopy and contrast media.

    KODEX-EPD: Introducing dielectric sensing

    PANO feature

    All relevant structures in a single view with the unique PANO feature

    See true anatomy without radiation

    The KODEX-EPD system provides real-time high-definition imaging that visualizes true anatomy in real-time during EP procedures, with 3D and the unique PANO feature. No ionizing radiation or contrast medium is required with this technique, and the resulting images show variations in cardiac anatomy – including accessory veins – that might otherwise be missed using conventional mapping systems.

    Personalize therapy based on intraprocedural insights


    KODEX-EPD visualizes patient-specific anatomical details with excellent clarity to allow personalized therapy planning and delivery. The system provides accurate navigation using any standard qualified catheter. In parallel, it creates continuously updated voltage and activation maps to support efficient collection of additional insights and confirm therapy impact.


    Tissue Engagement Viewer uses local dielectric measurements to determine an electrode’s engagement with cardiac tissue using any qualified catheter. This is displayed by a simple ‘No Touch’, ‘Touch’ and ‘High Touch’ visualization, ensuring optimal tissue engagement for accurate chamber navigation and optimal electro-anatomical mapping.

    Simplify your workflow for more efficient procedures

    KODEX-EPD promotes predictable and streamlined ablation procedures supported by efficient imaging workflow. Every aspect of the system is designed to save you time during EP procedures. You get detailed 3D anatomy in as little as 3 minutes. The system is easy to set up and offers a streamlined workflow with very little need to correct for physiological distortions or patient movement, compared to magnetic or impedance-based systems.


    Saline-based occlusion assessment workflow can reduce the need for contrast media when confirming cryo occlusion, which may help improve workflow, reduce the use of fluoroscopy and lessen the impact on renal deficiencies and comorbidities.*

    Optimize your quality of care

    KODEX-EPD offers many ways to support you in optimizing the quality of care for your patients. It is an open platform, so you can choose your preferred ablation method and use any qualified EP catheter. KODEX-EPD is compatible with the Medtronic DiamondTemp™ ablation system. Dielectric imaging does not use ionizing radiation and may reduce the need for pre-procedural CT/MRI images. Moreover, the KODEX-EPD system with Occlusion feature provides an indication of pulmonary vein occlusion without X-ray or contrast, by detecting changes in blood flow with the Medtronic Achieve™ Mapping Catheter. *


    Want to know more about KODEX-EPD?

    * While using KODEX-EPD occlusion functionality, always refer to the applicable cryoballoon technical manual, published literature, and exercise your physician discretion to guide confirmation of pulmonary vein occlusion.

    " Three ways we’re working to improve the tools and information EPs use to treat patients"

    Marlou Janssen

    Vice president / General Manager EPD Solutions, A Philips company

    As I approach my three-year anniversary leading EPD Solutions at Philips, I’ve been reflecting on my personal and professional experience with electrophysiology and arrhythmia, like atrial fibrillation (AF). AF is one of the leading risk factors for stroke, which itself is one of the leading causes of death and disability around the world.[1]  A few years ago, the impact of stroke became personal to me after my father experienced one. My professional drive to help improve treatment of AF so that fewer people suffer the debilitating consequences of stroke is strong. To improve treatment, innovation is needed to reduce the stress on electrophysiologists and solve unmet needs, still not addressed by current technology.
