Millennium HealthCare Inc. Installs VasoScan Cardiovascular Assessment Test in Select Physician Groups during First Week of Launch
Date:11/22/2013

GARDEN CITY, N.Y., Nov. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Millennium HealthCare Inc. (OTC Pink: MHCC) today announced that it has installed the proprietary, FDA-cleared VasoScan Cardiovascular Assessment Test in select physician group practices during its first week of launch. These practice groups include primary care physicians who manage a significant amount of patient visits per year. 

Dominick Sartorio, CEO of Millennium HealthCare Inc., said, "We are extremely excited about the placement of the first VasoScan units during our launch and anticipate the pace of our future installations to ramp-up significantly to over 100 units in the coming months. We are pleased to introduce innovative, non-invasive technology that General Practitioners can utilize in identifying patients with cardiovascular disease at an early stage, enhancing their practices with a powerful test normally reserved for specialists." 

General Practitioners assess cardiovascular risk using an electrocardiogram (known as an EKG or ECG), cholesterol and blood pressure tests. VasoScan offers another screen that can be used in conjunction with these tests to quickly assess the potential of a patient to develop plaque build-up in their arterial walls. It is a simple, three minute, non-invasive test that can be administered by a nurse or nurse practitioner.

Chris Amandola, President of Millennium HealthCare Inc., said, "According to the Agency for Health Research and Quality, a division of the Department of Health and Human Services of the US Government, in 2010 there were 209,000 practicing General Practitioners with over 500 million annual patient visits.  Millennium HealthCare anticipates that VasoScan could potentially become the standard of care among patients visiting General Practitioners.  Based on this assumption, we estimate that the potential market size in the United States for VasoScan could reach several hundreds of millions of dollars."

About VasoScan

VasoScan is an FDA cleared, non-invasive device that provides a reproducible assessment of arterial elasticity and stiffness which determines plaque levels in the arterial walls. Plaque buildup in the arteries can inhibit blood flow and could lead to stroke and heart attack. The cholesterol plaques of atherosclerosis are the primary cause of heart attacks, strokes, and peripheral arterial disease. These conditions together are called cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular disease is the leading killer in America, causing more than an estimated 900,000 deaths each year.

VasoScan determines the coronary health of at-risk patients in approximately three minutes.  It also assesses the ability of the circulatory system to tolerate emotional and physical stresses. The test utilizes a proprietary algorithm to measure a biomarker called Pulse Wave Velocity. Millennium has an exclusive right to market this product in the United States.
