ICON Medical Imaging Launches New Cardiac Echocardiography Analysis Software

December 10, 2008 - ICON today said its medical imaging division launched a new cardiac echocardiography analysis software solution, MIRA-ECHO, which enables echo images to be viewed, measured and interpreted in clinical trials and is the latest addition to ICON Medical Imaging's proprietary MIRA (Medical Imaging Review and Analysis) platform.

ECHO is a widely used clinical method for assessment of heart structure and function. It is playing an increasingly important role in clinical trials as both a marker of cardiac safety and as a measurement of the therapeutic effects of drugs and devices being evaluated in patients with heart failure. Currently available software is limited by the inability of the interpreting physician to fine-tune tracings of measurements of the borders of the heart wall against the full motion image of the heart. This fine-tuning can optimize the accuracy of an important marker of heart performance - the left ventricular ejection fraction.

MIRA-ECHO is a digital DICOM image viewer and analysis software module that is integrated with an eCRF (electronic case report form). It displays links from the traced images back to the measured moving heart image, and also to the numerical measurements captured in the eCRF. Functionality embedded within the eCRF allows a physician to adjust preliminary measurements, while maintaining compliance with 21 CFR Part 11 regulations. MIRA-ECHO also enables measurement and assessment of the full complement of echo parameters.
