Children’s Hospital in Western Canada to Become First to Use
Ventripoint Heart Analysis System for 3D Echocardiograms
Toronto, Ontario, August 21, 2019 – Ventripoint Diagnostics Ltd. (“Ventripoint” or the “Company”, TSXV:VPT, OTCQB:VPTDF) is pleased to announce that a children’s hospital in Western Canada will be the first hospital to use the VMS+ 3.0 software-only solution for the clinical assessment of pediatric cardiac patients using 3D ultrasound.
“Congenital heart defects are the most common types of birth defects affecting nearly 1 in every 100 babies making a non-invasive cardiac tool essential for patient care. The VMS+ 3.0 software solution will make a real difference to the clinical process and as a result, significantly improve analysis of volumetric measurements for the pediatric patient including a reduction in the need for an MRI,” commented Desmond Hirson, Ventripoint President.
Ventripoint’s VMS+ 3.0 software solution leverages an extensive heart database to produce accurate, reproducible volumes and ejection fractions with results in under 5 minutes. The software is approved for all 4 chambers of the heart and can be used for the analysis of 3D echo images generated by all commercially available 3D echocardiography systems.
The VMS+ 3.0 software and system are commercially available in Canada and Europe. The software and system are for investigational use in the United States and pending pre-market 510K clearance by the FDA.
