HDZ NRW Heart and Diabetes Center in Germany has Begun Using VMS+ Software for Left Ventricular Volumetric Analysis
Toronto, November 20, 2018 – Ventripoint Diagnostics Ltd. (“Ventripoint” or the “Company”, TSXV:VPT, OTCQB:VPTDF) is pleased to announce that Dr. Kai Thorsten Laser, an internationally renowned pediatric cardiologist at the HDZ NRW Heart and Diabetes Center in Germany, has begun using VMS+ software for 3D Echo analysis of the left ventricle.
HDZ NRW, a hospital specializing in the treatment of cardiac, vascular and metabolic diseases has already implemented the VMS+ software for analysis of the right ventricle. Now that the software has been approved for all 4 chambers of the heart, the hospital will be using the Ventripoint VMS+ system for left ventricular volume analysis, particularly for their pediatric patients.
“We have experienced very positive results and accuracy using Ventripoint’s VMS+ system on the right ventricle. We now look forward to performing 3D analysis to validate accuracy of volumes of the left ventricle and in turn, improve cardiac patient care.” commented Dr. Kai Thorsten Laser, MD in the Department of Congenital Heart Defects, Heart and Diabetes Center.
There are many potential applications for this innovative technology; providing confidence in the volumetric measurements of patients with accuracy comparable to cardiac MRI is its strength.
