Cardiac ultrasound imaging is difficult,

Measure global left ventricular function with SonoVol’s robotic imaging system

  • Using the SonoVol’s wide-field acquisition platform, a scout-scan of the abdomen/chest region is captured and the location of the heart is automatically identified.
  • Robotic stages ensure that motion (M)-mode line placement is reproducible without the need for a trained sonographer.
  • Global left ventricular (LV) function is measured and calculated including ejection fraction (EF), fractional shortening (FS), cardiac output (CO), and LV mass.
  • CT data from figure above adapted from open source DigiMouse atlas.

Visualize the heart in 4D

  • Volumetric LV measurement is the gold standard for assessing asymmetrical cardiac pathologies (i.e. myocardial infarction).
  • SonoVol has developed a method to reconstruct 4D echocardiograms allowing retrospective cardiac measurements in any slice plane.
  • Collect 4D videos in < 2 min.
  • No ECG or respiration gating required!
