October 8, 2015 — Personal MedSystems introduced the first and only 22-lead mobile electrocardiogram (ECG) system, CardioSecur, at the European Society of Cardiology Congress 2015, Aug. 29-Sept. 2 in London. The next generation of ECG solutions can be run with a smartphone or tablet PC, four electrodes and the CardioSecur App enabling the diagnosis and localization of cardiac ischemia, rhythm disorders and posterior wall infarctions. Clinical-grade quality readings allow a 360-degree view of the heart and therefore new diagnostic possibilities. CardioSecur's technology has been validated in several clinical studies and is available in two versions: CardioSecur Pro for professional use and CardioSecur Active for home use by patients.

The conventional 12-lead ECG has surely proven its worth in the diagnosis of cardiac disease. Nevertheless the display possibilities of a 12-lead ECG are limited to only 65 degrees in the transverse plane. This might be one of the reasons up to half of people who suffer from angina or silent ischemia, have normal ECG readings. In Europe alone, coronary artery disease still accounts for 4 million deaths every year. Symptoms for myocardial infarction are often indistinct while about one out of three heart attacks occurs symptom-free, which makes precise diagnosis even more difficult. Next to modern therapy options the need for enhanced diagnosis tools supporting physicians is crucial.

Quality and accuracy of CardioSecur has been validated in a clinical study against standard-of-care 10-electrode, 12-lead ECG systems and shows 99.5 percent accuracy. Using only four electrodes mitigates artifacts to a bare minimum, ensuring maximum signal quality and stable lead depiction. As the four electrodes are placed on very marked positions of the thorax, lead misplacement, often consequential to highly divers anatomies, is eradicated.

The professional 22-lead version CardioSecur Pro enables use in house calls, bed-ridden or reduced mobility patients as well as emergency situations. The lightweight 50g cable is accompanied by the Pro app which allows 10,000 minutes of ECG recording per 1GB via smartphone or tablet PC. The full ECG report can be sent directly to electronic patient records or colleagues and can be air printed. An automatic interpretation function is also available.

With the advent and optimization of nuclear scintigraphy protocols using bone-avid radiotracers, cardiac amyloidosis caused by transthyretin protein (ATTR) can now be diagnosed noninvasively without a costly tissue biopsy. The radiotracer 99mTc-pyrophosphate (99mTc-PYP) binds to deposited ATTR amyloid fibrils in the myocardium and can be visualized using planar and SPECT imaging.

With the advent and optimization of nuclear scintigraphy protocols using bone-avid radiotracers, cardiac amyloidosis caused by transthyretin protein (ATTR) can now be diagnosed noninvasively without a tissue biopsy. The radiotracer 99mTc-pyrophosphate (99mTc-PYP) binds to deposited ATTR amyloid fibrils in the myocardium and can be visualized using planar and SPECT imaging. This is Figure 2, showing how SPECT imaging allows the reader to distinguish between blood pool activity (ventricular cavity, etc) and myocardial activity and identify regional myocardial differences in radiotracer uptake.
