The first four patient procedures were performed by Principal Investigator Professor Mattias Duytschaever, M.D., at Sint-Jan Hospital in Brugge, Belgium.

"We are very pleased with the progress of our First-In-Man clinical study and we look forward to the forthcoming studies for our technology in the European markets" said Randy Werneth, CEO/president. "We have the ability in a matter of seconds to generate real-time 3-D images of the heart with quality equivalent to a CT or MRI."
