  • The Case For VentriPoint Diagnostics Ltd. (VPTDF) 0 comments
    Apr 24, 2013 2:12 PM | about stocks: VPTDF

    If you think that you're safe from heart disease, America's #1 killer, think again. There's a good chance that you are at risk, and simply don't know it. In fact, approximately half of all people, both men and women, who die from heart attack each year had no prior knowledge of their own heart disease. It's the reason that researchers around the world are anxious to improve diagnostic technologies, with an eye toward saving potentially millions of lives that will otherwise be lost.

    One of the newest diagnostic technologies now available for doctors in the fight against heart disease is the VentriPoint Medical System (VMSTM), going by the name "Angelo(VMSTM)", from VentriPoint Diagnostics. Different than any other heart diagnostic system, it uses sophisticated knowledge-based reconstruction technology applied against 2D ultrasound generated data to create a clear image of the "right heart," the portion of the heart that pumps blood to the lungs where it picks up oxygen.

    It's important for doctors to have a clear picture of right heart functioning for accurate diagnostics. However, because of the unique position of the right heart, getting a useful image has required an expensive and time-consuming MRI, especially difficult to get if the patient is a child. A standard MRI involves 1-2 hours of machine time, a radiologist, 15-45 minutes of analysis time, and often a second visit to the MRI center and a third visit back to the cardiologist. Prior to this new technology, ultrasound images of the right heart were too blurry to use, but now the VentriPoint system offers full right-heart image clarity together with the ease, speed, and cost advantages of a quick and simple ultrasound scan, usable even with babies.

    Leading hospitals around the world have already begun using the VentriPoint right-heart analysis system, and the company is now in talks with 2D ultrasound OEMs to jointly build a system for the early detection of pulmonary hypertension, potentially involving thousands of machines in the U.S. alone. Additional applications of the technology are on the horizon.
