    About Novadaq Technologies

    Novadaq Technologies Inc. commercializes real-time imaging and image
guidance systems for use in the operating room. With one set of proprietary
core technologies, Novadaq's products have multiple applications. Novadaq's
SPY System enables cardiac surgeons to diagnose intra-operatively by visually
assessing coronary vasculature and bypass graft functionality during the
course of heart bypass surgery. The SPY System is also indicated for use
during other surgeries, such as cardiovascular, plastic, reconstructive, organ
transplant and urological procedures. SPY can be used to visualize blood
vessels, tumors, tumor margins and the lymphatic system. Novadaq introduced
PINPOINT(TM), its first minimally invasive imaging system for autofluorescence
in October 2007. PINPOINT allows surgeons to differentiate between healthy and
cancerous tissue in the lung and other hollow organs. Further expanding its
portfolio of minimally invasive products, Novadaq is developing SPYscope which
combines the typical features of a standard endoscope with the additional
capabilities of SPY imaging. Novadaq is the exclusive United States
distributor of PLC Medical's CO(2) HEART LASER System, used in the same
cardiac procedures as the SPY System. Novadaq also offers the OPTTX(R) System,
which leverages the company's core imaging technology and is designed for the
diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of wet Age-related Macular Degeneration
(AMD). For more information, please visit the company's website at
