Level Ex® to Educate Interventional Cardiologists on Philips’ IVUS and iFR Through First-of-Its-Kind Video Game Training Platform

What: Level Ex, creator of industry-leading medical video games for physicians, launched new levels within the Cardio Ex™ app with Philips, a global leader in health technology.

Philips’ IVUS and Instant Wave-Free Ratio (iFR) are now integrated into select levels within Cardio Ex.

Where: The Philips cases will be accessible through the Cardio Ex app, available to download free from the App Store and Google Play. The new levels will be showcased at this year’s Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) 2019 conference in San Francisco.
