ECG

This channel includes news and new technology innovations ECG, electrocardiogram systems. These systems are also referred to as EKG, or eletrokardiogram from the original German term, where ECG was first developed. The channel includes news on standard diagnostic ECG systems, ECG management systems, defibrillator-monitors, Holter technology, and remote and wearable ECG patient monitoring.

The Abbott Tendyne transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR) system, left, became the first TMVR device to gain commercial regulatory clearance in the world. It gains European CE mark in January. Another top story in January was the first use of the Robocath R-One robotic cath lab catheter guidance system in Germany.  Watch a VIDEO of the system in use in one of those cases.

This is an example of artificial intelligence automation for cardiac MRI using an AI app from TeraRecon's Envoy AI marketplace. The GE MRI image has bee countoured, anatomy labeled and all quantification automated by the AI, greatly reducing post-processing time. See this and other new AI imaging technologies from the 2019 RSNA meeting.
