Hitachi Aloka Medical is collaborating with Dr. Uwe Nixdorff of the European Prevention Center in Düsseldorf, Germany, to strive for earlier diagnosis of coronary heart disease.pulse wave intensity, and determining how this translates to blood flow behavior, to obtain a simultaneous overview of both the heart's functional and physical properties. He discussed his experiences at Euroecho, the annual meeting of the European Association of Echocardiography (EAE) held last week in Budapest.
Hitachi Aloka Medical's e-flow technology creates a blood flow imaging mode with high spatial and temporal resolution. When combined with the company's e-tracking technology, it provides information on aortic pressure.
Nixdorff will be conducting training programs throughout the year that will be underwritten by the vendor.
