Ensure Quality
Quality is a cornerstone of all our activities. We seek the highest quality information, decisions and people. We produce high quality products and services. We are committed to the highest worldwide regulatory and quality standards.

Work In Teams
Diverse, cross-functional, global teams working together generate the best decisions for clinicians, patients, employees and shareholders. Our team structure provides opportunities for Volcano employees to impact the direction of the organization, to gain broader perspective about other functions within Volcano and to reach their full potential.

Collaborate, Communicate and Be Accountable
Volcano employees seek input and involve key stakeholders in important decisions. Once a decision is made, the leader and members of the team will be accountable for the results and for implementing the decision rapidly. As realists, we understand circumstances may change and require us to revisit previous decisions. We invite and embrace change and view it as an opportunity for further continuous improvement.
