With an aging population, increased obesity and other growing clinical indications, health systems have seen an increased occurrence of cardiovascular disease. A high percentage of these cases are patients ultimately diagnosed with heart failure, degenerative valve disease and atrial fibrillation. Today’s challenges, along with changes in healthcare economics and standards, require efficient and effective diagnostic solutions. These solutions must deliver health systems with tools to provide better patient care through improving quality, risk stratification and workflow while reducing patient readmissions, adding longevity to existing equipment, and standardizing across equipment vendor types and lowering costs.
Research, guidelines and clinical use have shown that speckle tracking strain imaging with echo can improve diagnostic assessment, standardize interpretation and assist in improving the monitoring of patients over time to optimize care. Additionally, strain imaging is a much more predictive and less variable measurement than traditional gold standard measurements, making it increasingly important.
Developments Supporting Strain Imaging for Clinical Use:
Although strain imaging has proven to be valuable in the assessment and management of patients with echo, until now, diagnostic software solutions with strain imaging have been research-oriented, laborious and workflow inefficient in clinical practice.
By delivering valuable echocardiographic analysis tools designed to transform patient management, EchoInsight with strain imaging is improving diagnostic confidence, standardization and efficiency. Designed for the clinical environment, EchoInsight visualization and analysis meets today’s clinical needs and healthcare system challenges.
Designed for the clinical environment, EchoInsight visualization and analysis provides:
Clinical strain imaging for improved confidence in assessment and monitoring of wall mechanics for the entire heart
