PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y., Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Premier Heart, LLC proudly announces that the Women's Heart Foundation will honor Joseph T. Shen, M.D., the inventor of the Multifunction CardioGram™ (MCG™) with its Medical and Science Achievement Award.
"The Women's Heart Foundation is pleased to recognize Dr. Joseph T. Shen with the Women's Heart Advocate Award for Leadership in Science and Medicine," stated Bonnie Arkus, Women's Heart Foundation president and founder. "Dr. Shen's invention of the Multifunction CardioGram represents a major breakthrough in cardiology. The test is quick, non-invasive, risk free and has a high degree of reliability in both women and men in the diagnosis of ischemic heart disease. By recognizing Dr. Shen, we hope to raise awareness of ischemic heart disease and promote widespread use of the Multifunction CardioGram to save more hearts and more lives."
MCG™ is the world's first Internet based non-invasive, stress, radiation and drug free computational electrophysiological system, providing an objective early detection of Ischemia caused by Coronary Arterial Disease to save lives.
"I am very humbled and honored by this award, which I accept on behalf of all those who have devoted their professional lives to the development of MCG technology," said Joseph T. Shen, MD, founder of Premier Heart.
The Red Dress Luncheon commemorates National Women's Heart Week and serves as a platform to educate the public about heart disease in women during February, which is National Heart Month.
Keynote speaker for the event will be John E. Strobeck, MD, PhD, FACC, a practicing cardiologist and user of MCG, who stated: "The Multifunction CardioGram will become a major force in fighting heart disease at the earliest stages, and with Highmark Medicare's recent approval of MCG as a 'new technology', many patients will benefit from the early confirmation of the presence or absence of significant coronary disease when symptoms of chest discomfort occur."
