VentriPoint, University of Washington Sign Research and Technology Development Agreement
Date:4/25/2008

Projects Focus on Completion of the Congenital Heart Disease Database and the Further Transition of Knowledge and Processes to VentriPoint for the

Development of the VentriPoint Diagnostic System

SEATTLE, April 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- VentriPoint(TM) Diagnostics Ltd. (TSX: VPT) today announced that it has finalized a research and technology development agreement with the University of Washington to collaborate on projects that will enhance and broaden the VentriPoint Diagnostic System (VDS) commercial offering.

Under the terms of the agreement, the University of Washington will expand its recruitment of leading institutions world-wide to participate in building comprehensive databases of right and left ventricle reconstructions representing specific heart diseases, such as congenital heart disease (CHD). These databases will be referenced by the VDS as it delivers three-dimensional models and analysis of patients' hearts based on anatomical points identified by doctors on two-dimensional scans.

"Our core technology was first developed at the University of Washington, so it makes sense to collaborate with their subject matter experts," said Joseph Ashley, CEO of VentriPoint Diagnostics. "The results of these projects will enhance and speed the commercial development of the VentriPoint Diagnostic System, which uses existing medical imaging systems to generate critical heart measurements in a rapid and inexpensive manner not currently available."

Under the agreement, the University of Washington will collaborate with VentriPoint to increase the size of the database used by the VDS by up to 160 additional CHD heart reconstructions of different conditions. The University of Washington will also continue its transition of knowledge and processes to VentriPoint, in support of the technology license. It will also commence recruitment of patients with pulmonary hypertension to begin development of a subsequent VDS applic
