SEATTLE, WASHINGTON -- (Marketwired) -- 07/07/14 -- Ventripoint Diagnostics Ltd. ("Ventripoint") (TSX VENTURE: VPT) announces that a group led by Dr. Kai Laser at the Center for Congenital Heart Defects, Bad Oeynhausen, Germany, has published the results of a clinical study that demonstrates the robust application of the VMS heart analysis technology beyond 2D ultrasound imaging in a wide range of cardiac conditions.
"The Ventripoint approach to analyzing the right ventricle of the heart works for all types of scanning and gives rapid, accurate and important results for the diagnoses and management of patients with a wide spectrum of complex cardiac conditions," stated Dr. Laser.
For the first time, this study shows that the bias often reported between MRI and echocardiography results are due to analysis technique and not imaging modality. In the study all three imaging modalities: 2D-echo, 3D echo and cardiac MRI gave the same results when analyzed using the VMS technique and were equivalent to the gold-standard MRI analysis using the method of disks. Historically, the comparison of echocardiography and cardiac MRI analysis has been discouraged due to unexplained discrepancies. This is an important consideration when trying to assess a patient's progress over time where multiple imaging modalities may have been used in the past. Standardization using the VMS technique for all images would give comparable longitudinal results and allow for better patient monitoring and treatment decisions.
The study also showed that the time to complete the analysis on these complex cases was reduced to 5 minutes using the VMS approach compared to 10 to 30 minutes using conventional techniques.
A report has been accepted for publication in the Journal of the American Society of Echocardiography and is entitled "Knowledge-Based Reconstruction of Right Ventricular Volumes Using Real-time Three-dimensional Echocardiographic as Well as Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Images: Comparison with a Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Standard." This study further validates the VMS approach as accurate and reliable for analyzing MRI images or 3D ultrasound images, when adequate quality images can be acquired.
"This study, by an independent group, shows how the VMS technology can be applied across multiple imaging modalities and provides accurate and equivalent results for Right Ventricular function," stated Dr. George Adams, CEO of Ventripoint. "This ability of the VMS greatly increases our market potential, as it allows us to seek partners who would integrate the VMS approach into MRI and 3D-echocardiography analysis packages, while continuing to market VMS for routine 2D-echocardiography."
