A Second Canadian Heart Institute to Receive Ventripoint
VMS+ 3.0 Whole-Heart Analysis System
Toronto, Ontario, July 23, 2019 – Ventripoint Diagnostics Ltd. (“Ventripoint” or the
“Company”, TSXV:VPT, OTCQB:VPTDF) is pleased to announce that a second
Canadian Heart Institute has ordered a VMS+ 3.0 complete heart analysis system for
the assessment of adult cardiac patients.
“We are excited to have a second Canadian heart institute acquiring the VMS+ 3.0. With
heart disease being one of the leading causes of death for men and women, the VMS+
3.0 system will transform how this disease is monitored and diagnosed for their
patients,” noted Desmond Hirson, Ventripoint’s President.
The VMS+ 3.0 system is a breakthrough non-invasive diagnostic tool to monitor patients
with heart disease and congenital heart problems. The cost-effective system uses
Artificial Intelligence (AI) to provide a streamlined approach for volumetric
measurements and ejection fractions for all 4 chambers of the heart from standard 2D
echo images. It is also the only approved way to generate substantially equivalent
results to the gold standard MRI.
The VMS+ 3.0 system is now commercially available in Canada and Europe. The
system is for investigational use in the United States and pending pre-market 510K
clearance by the FDA.
