Data demonstrates that NewCardio's platform technology delivers new levels of analysis of heart's electrical activity
SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NewCardio, Inc., (OTC Bulletin Board: NWCI) a cardiac diagnostic and services company, today announced that members of the Company's medical and technology teams presented two abstracts and discussed new clinical data from analytical and clinical applications of its proprietary platform technology at The Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) 30th Annual Scientific Sessions on May 13-16, 2009 in Boston, MA.
NewCardio introduced the NewCardio platform, QTinno(TM) and Visual3Dx(TM), at Heart Rhythm 2009 30th Annual Scientific Sessions. The Company believes that its QTinno(TM), software-based, analytical technology is the industry's first solution for the reliable automated analysis of ECGs used to determine cardiac toxicity during drug development. Visual3Dx(TM) will generate 3D information from the heart using standard 12-lead ECG data. It is expected to provide clinicians additional information on the extent and localization of acute ischemic insult to the heart to improve the speed and accuracy of diagnosis of Acute Coronary Syndrome.
HRS is the international leader in science, education and advocacy for cardiac arrhythmia professionals and patients, and the primary information resource on heart rhythm disorders. Its mission is to improve the care of patients by promoting research, education and optimal health care policies and standards. The Annual Scientific Sessions attract more than 9,000 professionals representing the allied specialties of cardiac pacing and cardiac electrophysiology. More information is available at http://www.hrsonline.org/Sessions/ on the Internet.
The two abstracts presented were:
"Vectorcardiographic Evidence of Cardiac Memory During Continuous Ventricular Pacing," authored by Drs. Alexei Shvilkin, Mark Josephson and Peter Zimetbaum, all of the Department of Medicine/Division of Cardiology at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center/
"Vectorcardiographic Discrimination Between Acute and Chronic Left Bundle Branch Block," authored by Drs. Shvilkin, Josephson and Zimetbaum from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center/
Branislav Vajdic, PhD, NewCardio's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "These two abstracts clearly demonstrate the power of NewCardio's platform technology in difficult clinical settings. This solution enables doctors to obtain much more clinically relevant information than previous technologies allowed, setting the stage for clinical advances which have the potential to save lives by more rapidly and accurately diagnosing cardiac events. We are excited to have had the opportunity to discuss these findings at the Heart Rhythm Society conference, the premier gathering for the electrophysiology community."
