Cardiac Imaging

The cardiac imaging channel includes the modalities of computed tomography (CT), cardiac ultrasound (echocardiography), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear imaging (PET and SPECT), and angiography.

EchoGo Pro automates cardiac ultrasound measurements for heart functions, but also empower physicians to predict the occurrence of coronary artery disease (CAD).
