TomTec gets FDA nod for cardiac MR softwareBy AuntMinnieEurope.com staff writers
April 23, 2012 -- Imaging software developer TomTec Imaging Systems has received 501(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its new 2D Cardiac Performance Analysis (CPA) MR software.
The 2D CPA MR software is a vendor-independent application for quantifying myocardial function with cardiac MR cine images, the firm said. The software uses feature-tracking technology to calculate regional and global velocity, displacement, strain, and strain-rate parameters.
The manual trace of a single endocardial contour serves as an initial pattern from which the system tracks the displacement of myocardial structures over the length of a complete heart cycle, TomTec said. The software tracks endo- and epicardium and describes left ventricular deformation in terms of longitudinal, radial, and circumferential components.
