CardioWise, a Fayetteville medical software company and VIC Technology Venture Development portfolio company, recently announced that it has submitted its final report to the National Science Foundation outlining its research in developing a non-invasive method for detection of heart disease.


In 2013, CardioWise received two National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation and Research grants. The report details the following milestones were achieved by CardioWise in 2013:


  •  Development of a cloud-based software that enables health-care providers and patients to download CardioWise analysis to any browser-based device in accordance with federal guidelines including HIPAA.  This development allows for analysis on mobile devices so that both providers and patients can see the images and become more involved in treatment discussions.
  • Automation and testing of the CardioWise software.  MRI analysis has been historically done by hand and the CardioWise software reduces the total analysis time from six hours to less than 30 minutes. The time reduction allows an entire image acquisition and analysis to be completed in a single office visit.
  • Clinical validation of the Cardiowise software through analysis of MRI scans of multiple MRI scans for the same patient. 

The CardioWise analysis software analyzes the 3-D motion of the heart from images acquired from cardiac MRIs and compares the analysis at 15,300 points to the motion of a normal heart model to detect portions of the heart moving abnormally.  CardioWise’s software is non-invasive and presents a diagnostic method that may aid doctors to determine the right course of treatment for patients with cardiovascular disease.
