News Release - February 15, 2011
TomTec Receives FDA 510(k) Clearance for 4D MV-Assessment(R) 2.0 Software- the Solution for Improved Diagnostic Confidence in Mitral Valve Diagnostic Using 4D UltrasoundMUNICH, Germany--(Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network)-- TomTec Imaging Systems GmbH announces the FDA 510(k) clearance for its new 4D MV-Assessment© 2.0 product. The software uses real-time three-dimensional echocardiography (3DE) for the analysis of the mitral valve. Within less than a minute, 4D MV-Assessment© 2.0 derives static and dynamic measurements of the entire mitral valve apparatus. This solution is tailored to clinical setups where precise diagnosis meets the demand of topmost efficiency.
Automated features and a “smart workflow” have considerably shortened analysis times and supply users with accurate information for their clinical decision in seconds.
Understanding the non-planar, three-dimensional geometry of the mitral valve (MV) has been shown to be an important aspect regarding the treatment of mitral valve disease. Such as better understanding of geometric determinants in cases of functional mitral regurgitation can improve individualized surgical planning and thus lead to better outcomes.
“We developed the 4D MV-Assessment© software considering input from leading clinical partners around the world, with an emphasis on user-friendliness and accuracy. Receiving FDA clearance for 4D MV-Assessment© is a major step for us. We have proven again that TomTec offers solutions which are ’One-Step-Ahead’, says Frank Schlau, TomTec’s Chief Marketing Officer.”
