SEATTLE, WASHINGTON -- (Marketwired) -- 06/20/14 -- Ventripoint Diagnostics Ltd. ("Ventripoint") (TSX VENTURE: VPT) announces that it will be exhibiting at the 25th Annual Scientific Sessions hosted by the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) in Portland, Oregon, held June 20th through June 24th.
"At the ASE this year, the Company will be emphasizing to the echocardiology healthcare professionals the recent FDA clearance of VMS as substantially equivalent to MRI in patients with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH). The VMS can uniquely demonstrate the ability of echocardiography to be as accurate as MRI. This puts us in an excellent position at this congress to showcase the benefits of the VMS", stated the CEO of Ventripoint, Dr. George Adams.
Ventripoint will occupy booth #608 in the main exhibition hall and will be distributing demonstration cases to highlight the features of the VMS to individual cardiologists and research scientists. Those who are unable to attend the ASE 2014, may contact Ventripoint directly at [email protected] to order the VMS case studies.
"Each year at the ASE we see more time dedicated to presentations concerning RV imaging and analysis. This year the trend continues as the RV is focused on throughout the sessions, from the very first presentation on Saturday titled "Echo in Pulmonary Hypertension", to the very last on Tuesday with "Echo in Heart Failure and Congenital Heart Disease: Imaging that Impacts Management," commented Jim Bodtke, VP Clinical Affairs and Development for Ventripoint. "Being part of the annual ASE Scientific Sessions is the greatest single event we can attend as it gives us direct access to thousands of potential customers, allowing us to demonstrate our product's capabilities to practitioners as well as to the ultrasound manufacturers. We look forward to engaging potential end users of the VMS and to further developing potential partnerships with world-leading companies to expand our product offerings."
