Office-based CVD Risk Assessment

 

 

Problems  

Solutions

 

 

 

 

 

Traditional risk factors (cholesterol, blood pressure, etc.) cannot accurately identify who has asymptomatic atherosclerosis and needs intensive therapy.

 

 

Noninvasive ultrasound imaging of carotid artery is recommended to improve risk assessment particularly in those considered as borderline or “Intermediate Risk”. However, reproducible measurement of Carotid Intima Media Thickness (CIMT) is dependent on having a skilled vascular sonographer therefore cannot be done accurately in most physician offices.

 

Conventional CIMT measurement is a multi-step process that takes significant time and requires interpretation both of which increase cost.

 

 

CardioHealth® Station enables you to directly visualize subclinical atherosclerosis (increased wall thickness and hidden plaque in carotid arteries). Carotid ultrasound studies that include CIMT measurement and scanning for plaque have been shown in large, prospective clinical studies to improve CV risk classification.

 

CardioHealth® Station, with its simplified user interface, guided touch screen controls, and automated ultrasound features, enables virtually any medical professional to perform reproducible carotid scans in an office-based setting.

 

 

 

By automating and removing multiple steps typically required in CIMT measurement, CardioHealth® Station improves workflow.

 

Patient Compliance

 

Problems  

Solutions

 

 

Long-term compliance to physician orders for lifestyle modifications and drug therapy is often poor, especially in primary prevention.

 

Compliance increases once high risk individuals are shown a picture of their carotid IMT and plaque which is generated immediately by CardioHealth® Station.
