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:
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.
