HEART VIEW MEDICAL
Our vision is to redefine the cardiology community’s understanding of the human heartbeat. HeartView Medical is developing the next generation high speed ultrasound system with extensive algorithms that enable automated quantitative measurements of the heart in a 3D view within one heart beat compared to current technology.
Values: Our values revolve around understanding what makes us ill, by providing doctors tools and answers they would not have thought of. We believe that it is the quality of every life, for every human being on this planet that matters. We understand that “a one fit all solution” does not work. For tomorrow society needs to know what makes us different through scientific methods and analysis.

WHAT WE DO
Current state of the art: While imaging techniques are central to these advances, limitations exist in current imaging methods in their ability to rapidly record cardiac events (at physiologic speeds). At present, recording speeds are insufficient to properly link electrical activation to mechanical events and flow. ECG record activity in the 1-2 millisecond, i.e. 500-1000 events per second range while imaging methods (angiography, computed tomography-CT, magnetic resonance imaging-MRI and echocardiography) can record events between 5 to 100 times per second, thus substantially slower than ECG. In the case of 3D echo, CT and MRI, the problem is further confounded by the necessity to create images over multiple heartbeats where only portions of the image are obtained in a single heartbeat. A breakthrough in imaging of the heart at very high acquisition rates (physiologic rate imaging) is needed to further advance our understanding of the relationship of electrical, mechanical and flow events.
With a high-speed echocardiographic system Heart will change the way a heartbeat is understood from a diagnostic perspective. This means:
Diagnostic improvement for heart failure and tailored therapy with heart failure devices
Improved arrhythmia detection
Increased capability in detection of hypertrophy, fibrosis and scar
Potential to identify subclinical heart disease
Reduced need for MRI and CT
Substantially reduced acquisition time
IMPLANT PATIENTS NEED BETTER TREATMENT
VOLUMES PER SECOND WITH HVM
ACQUISITIONS FOR FULL DIAGNOSIS
