Based in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, ACIST Medical Systems, part of the Bracco Group, was founded by an interventional cardiologist on a mission.
Dr. Robert (Bob) F. Wilson, Professor of Medicine and Director of the Interventional Cardiology Program at the University of Minnesota, wanted to create a device that took into consideration the needs of both physicians and patients in the cath lab. This sparked the creation of ACIST CVi™, a device that simplifies contrast injection for all procedures.
Since then, ACIST has become a knowledge catalyst, helping interventional cardiologists quickly visualize, assess and improve patient treatment.
