ANN ARBOR (WWJ) – Epsilon Imaging Inc., a visualization and analysis software developer specializing in cardiac diagnosis, has launched a new application designed for assessment of the heart’s right ventricle.

EchoInsight computer-aided visualization and analysis offers quick and intuitive strain imaging along with automated cardiac function measurements for enhanced confidence and workflow in echo interpretation. The EchoInsight suite of applications now includes Cardio Oncology for Left Ventricle assessment and management, RV and Stress Echo. The complete suite of applications is now available for sale.

Two cardiologists, Roberto Lang of the University of Chicago and Benjamin Freed of Northwestern Memorial Hospital, recently presented a study called “Right Ventricular Strain in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension: Comparison Between 2D Echocardiography and Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance.” The study analyzed 25 patients with pulmonary hypertension using both ultrasound and MR. RV longitudinal strain from ultrasound was measured using EchoInsight and RV strain from MR was measured using Diagnosoft. The study demonstrated that results from EchoInsight were comparable to those derived from cardiac MR, suggesting that RV strain from 2D echocardiography is a reasonable and practical option for examining RV myocardial deformation.

Attend a free educational webinar with Dr. Freed, “Enhancing Management of Pulmonary Hypertension Patients with Practical Strain Imaging of the Right Ventricle” on Dec. 3 at noon Eastern time. Register by visiting https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/8979506209123688705.
