Panasonic Unveils Enhanced Software For CardioHealth Station At ACC.12

Panasonic Healthcare Group of Panasonic Corp. (PC) 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.
