VentriPoint Diagnostics was pleased to announce today that the cardiology group from the University of Chicago, led by Dr. Roberto Lang, has published a paper entitled "Three-Dimensional Modeling of the Right Ventricle from Two-Dimensional Transthoracic Echocardiographic Images: Utility of Knowledge-Based Reconstruction in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension" in the Journal of the American Society of Echocardiography (JASE), Volume 26, Issue 8, Pages 860-867, August 2013.

Knowledge-Based Reconstruction (NYSE:KBR) is the scientific terminology for VentriPoint's VMS™ product. The VMS™ has been approved for clinical use in Canada and Europe, but is currently for investigational use only in the United States.

The paper concludes: "Three-dimensional reconstruction of the RV endocardium from 2D transthoracic echocardiographic images obtained in patients with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (NYSE:PAH), as accomplished by Knowledge-Based Reconstruction (KBR), is feasible, accurate, and reproducible."

Dr. George Adams, CEO of Ventripoint, stated, "We congratulate the Chicago cardiology team on the publication of this first-in-humans, clinical study in the premiere journal in the field of echocardiography."

JASE is the official publication of the American Society of Echocardiography, which is the largest international organization for cardiac imaging. The journal brings physicians and sonographers the most current clinical, scientific, legal, and economic information regarding the use of cardiac ultrasound. JASE's original, peer-reviewed articles cover conventional procedures as well as newer clinical techniques.
