Analyze the left ventricular function of your patients with the LVA (Left Ventricular Analysis) workflow. The application provides calibration and automatic contour detection resulting in volume calculation and wall motion analysis.

Key Product Features

  • Ventricular border detection
  • Multiple volume models
  • Multiple wall motion models: Centerline, Radial, Regional, Slager.

Key Results

  • Ejection fraction
  • End diastolic and end systolic volume
  • Stroke volume
  • Cardiac output
  • Cardiac index
  • Wall thickness, volume, mass and stress
  • Wall motion
