Volcano Announces Acquisition of Novelis, Inc.
Date:5/19/2008

Novelis' Forward-Looking IVUS technology platform expected to enable Volcano to offer an expanded line of minimally invasive diagnostic and

therapeutic devices

SAN DIEGO, May 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Volcano Corporation (Nasdaq: VOLC), a provider of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), functional measurement (FM) and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) products designed to enhance the diagnosis and treatment of coronary and peripheral vascular disease, said today that it has acquired Novelis, Inc., a privately-held company with proprietary ultrasonic visualization and therapy technology for minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic devices.

Novelis' proprietary Forward-Looking IVUS technology platform is expected to build upon Volcano's existing suite of products and further enhance Volcano's position as an imaging technology leader in the field of interventional medicine by enabling forward-looking IVUS and associated therapies in the interventional cardiology market. Volcano expects to add the Novelis products and capability onto its s5i multi-modality integrated platform/hub.

Novelis' core product line is based on Forward-Looking Intravascular Ultrasound (FLIVUS) technology. The product line includes an image-guided crossing catheter that combines visualization, steerability and RF tissue ablation, which is designed to permit Interventional Cardiologists to safely cross chronic total occlusions ("CTO") in the coronary and peripheral arteries, and a forward-looking IVUS catheter (imaging-only version) to facilitate current guidewire-based CTO crossing techniques as well as other potential product offerings with possible applications outside of vascular medicine.
