Ventripoint Diagnostics Announces U.S. FDA Clearance for
VMS+ 3.0 Whole Heart Analysis System
Toronto, Ontario, October 17, 2019 – Ventripoint Diagnostics Ltd. (“Ventripoint” or the “Company”, TSXV:VPT, OTCQB:VPTDF) is pleased to announce that they have received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for the VMS+ 3.0 whole heart analysis system.
The VMS+ 3.0 system connects to standard echocardiography machines, the most widely used cardiac imaging technology globally. The system uses a proprietary Knowledge Based Reconstruction (KBR) technology creating 3D images of the heart and calculates volumes and ejection fraction for all 4 cardiac chambers with accuracy equivalent to MRI. The system can reduce the need for MRI in pediatrics and adults.
“We are thrilled that our innovative heart analysis system can now be used in hospitals across the United States. Millions of echocardiograms are performed in the US annually and our goal is to become the premier analysis tool for cardiac imaging in both pediatric and adult hospitals,” commented Dr. George Adams, Ventripoint’s CEO.
Each year, $200 Billion is spent on heart disease in the US alone (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). With heart disease being one of the leading causes of death for both men and women worldwide, accurate cardiac measurements are critical for patient care.
The VMS+ 3.0 system also has a Health Canada License and CE Marking (for the EU).
