Apollo adds to its set of image analysis and clinical decision support tools with DiACardio’s LVivo automated Echo Evaluation Toolbox
Apollo today announced that it has entered into an agreement with DiACardio Ltd to integrate their revolutionary cardiology decision support tools into Apollo’s Enterprise Imaging solution, Apollo EPMM® (Enterprise Patient Multimedia Manager).
Apollo will integrate DiACardio’s innovative LVivo Toolbox, which enables cardiologists to analyze echo clips, automatically and instantly with high accuracy in a click of a button. Based on proprietary technology it enables automated calculation of the Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction and global strain (LVivo EF) in addition to automated segmental wall motion and segmental strain evaluation of the left ventricle (LVivo SG). Using these tools within Apollo EPMM, users will be able to conduct quick, accurate and objective cardiac analyses on echocardiograms at the touch of a button.
Recent ACC/AHA guideline updates regarding the treatment and evaluation of heart failure underscore the importance of reliable, standardized, reproducible and quantitative reporting of left ventricular function. The combined capabilities of Apollo and DiACardio represent a leap forward in cardiac imaging, establishing a new standard in echocardiography. This advancement allows us to diagnose illness more reliably, share images with colleagues more readily, and with precision, quantitatively track response to treatment in an era where CRT devices are being recommended more frequently. Cardiac experts are delighted by the products’ combination of precision and convenience.
