Panasonic Unveils Enhanced Software For CardioHealth Station At ACC.12

Panasonic Healthcare Group of Panasonic Corp. (PC: Quote) debuted new, improved software for the CardioHealth Station at the American College of Cardiology's, or ACC's, 61st Annual Scientific Session & Expo, ACC.12, being held March 24 though March 28 in Chicago.

The company stated that the CardioHealth Station is designed to assist medical professionals in making a quick and valuable assessment of cardiovascular health and has been cleared by the Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, for use in the automated acquisition of carotid intima-media thickness data and risk assessment.

According to Panasonic, the CardioHealth Station has a built-in portable ultrasound system optimized to perform non-invasive examinations of the peripheral vessels. It provides an automated measurement of the intima-media thickness of peripheral arteries such as the common carotid and allows the user to search for arterial plaques in B-mode imaging.

Further, the touchscreen keyboard allows the user to input various parameters related to traditional cardiovascular risk factors and a built-in calculator provides risk scores (Framingham Risk Score, PROCAM Health Check Score, Reynolds Risk Score, risk score based on the SCORE project) commonly used in a variety of medical environments.
