Seattle, Washington – January 21, 2016 - Ventripoint Diagnostics Ltd. (“Ventripoint” or the “Company”) (TSXV:VPT) is pleased to announce that is has licensed the knowledge-based reconstruction (KBR) technology for the left atrium and right atrium of the heart.
“This new technology will allow the Company to offer accurate and rapid analysis of all 4 chambers of the heart,” stated Dr. George Adams, CEO of Ventripoint, “Cardiologists worldwide need this information to understand what is wrong with the whole heart.”
The Company had previously licensed the KBR technology for the right ventricle and left ventricle from the University of Washington and has now amended that license to include the right and left atria.
