TomTec Introduces 2D CPA a Vendor Independent Solution for Strain and Time to Peak Velocity Analysis Based on Speckle Tracking
TomTec launches its 2D Cardiac Performance Analysis package as part of TomTec's CardioArena(TM) multimodality imaging solution at the European Society of Cardiology congress 2008 in Munich.
2D Cardiac Performance Analysis(C) allows a cardiologist to study the behaviour of the heart muscle quickly and easily. Quantitative assessment of displacement, velocity and strain in individual muscle segments is available. This helps in diagnosing pathologies like hypertrophic cardiomyopathy or also dyssynchronous ventricles that might have to be treated by cardiac resynchronisation therapy.
2D Cardiac Performance Analysis(C) is a speckle tracking based analysis tool which can analyze 2D data from various ultrasound machines. The user can work with different ultrasound systems in his network and is not limited to specific vendors.
"2D Cardiac Performance Analysis runs within TomTec's CardioArena(TM) environment which provides connectivity to multivendor Echo labs. This solution is user oriented and fulfills the demands of cardiologists towards a simplified workflow!" said Frank Schlau, TomTec's Chief Marketing Officer.
TomTec Imaging Systems GmbH, with headquarter located in Munich Germany holds an inventive leadership position in the field of diagnostic medical imaging applications and Cardio PACS solutions. The company maintains close working relationships with many leading universities and device manufacturers around the world. TomTec's product portfolio encompasses a wide range of 2D and 3D/4D technologies for visualization, analysis, reporting and archiving of multimodality imaging data.
