TomTec introduces new version of 2D cardiac performance analysis
18 August 2010
TomTec has launched a new version of its 2D Cardiac
Performance Analysis (2D CPA) package as part of its Image-Arena
multimodality imaging solution.
The software allows a cardiologist to study the behaviour of the
heart muscle even quicker and easier due to improved handling.
Quantitative assessment of displacement, velocity, strain and strain
rate according to the ASE 16 segments model 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 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 Image-Arena
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.
