Ventripoint Provides Live Demonstrations of the VMS+3.0 System at American College of Cardiology 68th Annual Conference
Toronto, Ontario, March 19, 2019 – Ventripoint Diagnostics Ltd. (“Ventripoint” or the “Company”, TSXV:VPT, OTCQB:VPTDF) is pleased to announce that it successfully showcased the next-generation VMS+3.0 system at the American College of Cardiology’s 68th Annual Scientific Session & Expo.
With nearly 20,000 cardiologists from around the world attending the ACC’s Annual Scientific Sessions & Expo, it provided an opportunity to give live hands-on demonstrations in the Ventripoint booth to a highly captivated audience.
“Attending the global marketplace for cardiovascular innovation gave us the forum to showcase the VMS+ 3.0 system to attending cardiologists, along with discussions for technology industry partnerships. It is evident there is a clear need for accurate volumetric measurements for right ventricular function. We have scheduled a number of follow-up meetings at both pediatric and adult cardiac centers,” notes Jessica Naman, Marketing Manager at Ventripoint Diagnostics.
The VMS+3.0 system is designed to use standard 2D echo images to provide a streamlined approach for volumetric measurements and ejection fractions for all 4 chambers of the heart. The compact and portable system can be set-up within minutes. It has an interactive guided workflow embedded in the system to highlight view capture and point placement on each view to increase efficiency and ease of use while performing imaging and analysis. The system uses a new patent-pending position sensor, which allows the patient to re-position during the imaging portion of the exam.
The VMS+3.0 system is not commercially available for sale. For investigational use only.
