Third generation non-invasive intracardiac blood flow visualisation technology

Hitachi  have introduced their latest level of intelligent Vector Flow Mapping (iVFM) systems, which provides unique information about the intraventricular vortex and its energetic efficiency, including kinetic energy loss, relative pressure or wall shear stress display and analysis.

Built on the premium 2D/4D/4G CMUT LISENDO 880LE ultrasound system, which is as a part of the HDAnalytics, a unique and accurate cardiovascular analysis package for confident cardiac hemodynamic assessments, the new iVFM features faster data processing through automation for a simplified workflow. The embedded iVFM is now available for both intracardiac and vascular flow structures.

Prof. Jose Luis Zamorano, Professor of Medicine, Head of Cardiology at the University Hospital Ramón y Cajal, Madrid: “VFM offers a better insight into cardiac physiology and is a new way of analyzing cardiac resynchronization therapy responders. VFM is easy to analyze and creates a better understanding of cardiac diseases”.

Mr. Jean-Luc Budillon, President and COO of Hitachi Medical Systems Europe: “Ever since their inception, today’s ultrasound systems have continually progressed to become essential medical devices for all levels of cardiovascular care. The LISENDO 880LE is Hitachi’s new premium 2D/4D/4G CMUT diagnostic ultrasound solution for cardiologists that redefines the vision of cardiac ultrasound by providing exceptional clinical performance coupled with state-of-the-art features and analytics”.

Hitachi have a full range of innovative cardiovascular imaging systems, all of them designed to be a true one-system solution for adult, fetal, paediatric and congenital heart patients. With the introduction of the new iVFM system, Hitachi claims it is raising the bar not only in image quality but also in premium technologies, asvancing cardiologists to the next level in CV ultrasound imaging.
