Using 3D echocardiographic datasets, 4D MV- Assessment presents the anatomical structures of the Mitral Valve, annulus and the closure line of the two leaflets in a three dimensional model.

In addition to that, comprehensive measurements enable doctors to quantify pathological findings.

TomTec said that the automated features and a revised workflow have shortened examination times and deliver quantitative parameters for the doctor’s decision making in 20 seconds.

TomTec chief marketing officer Frank Schlau said that the current 4D Mitral Valve assessment tools have shown that a static analysis is problematic for reproducibility and communication since the parameters are depending on the chosen heart phase.

“TomTec`s new 4D MV-Assessment software analyses the whole systolic heart cycle and together with its dramatic improvements in workflow it addresses the needs of cardiologists and surgeons for improved communication and clinical decision making,” Schlau said.
