The Ventripoint system removes the need for a cardiac MRI and generates a 3D reconstruction and cMRI equivalent cardiac measurements of all four chambers of the heart within 3-5 minutes.
Obtain volume and ejection fraction calculations for LV, RV, LA, and RA from sparse data. The mean percent difference between VMS and MRI results are within ±10% for EDV, ESV, and EF with a 95% confidence*.

How does Ventripoint work?
The Ventripoint system, using the innovative Knowledge Based Reconstruction (KBR) algorithm, leverages an MRI shape catalogue and anatomical landmarks from standard 2D echocardiogram images to construct a complete 3D model of the heart within minutes. The step-by-step workflow enables clinicians to perform acquisition and analysis with minimal training whilst improving on current tools:
Ventripoint can be installed on any personal office workstation within minutes.
Imaging and analysis can take place anywhere and anytime after cardiac MRI or 3D echocardiogram.
Generates qualitative measurements for all 4 chambers of the heart with reliable and repeatable results.
Proven to generate accurate results with poor quality images.
Applicable to all heart diseases for both adult and pediatric patients.
Analysis takes 3-5 minutes thus accomodating high patient loads.
Allows close monitoring of a patients heart therefore helping early diagnoses and treatment decisions.
By incorporating Vntripoint into your standard 2D Echo exam workflow allows for quick, accurate and reproducible volumetric measurements and ejection fractions.
Ventripoint is a diagnostic aid that was developed to provide a point of care solution to better communicate the heart's structure and function without the need for MRI.
Ventripoint marries the ingenuity of the cardiac MRI and Echo with the power of Ventripoint's KBR technology. KBR enables you to construct a 3D model of the heart and calculates volumes and ejection fractions for all chambers with an accuracy comparable to the MRI.
Results in 3 easy steps
Records the ultrasound images from a video output of the 2D ultrasound and tracks the ultrasound transducer’s 3D spatial coordinates and orientation via our sensors during echo scan
Points are placed on the images to mark the position of anatomic landmarks. No tracing is required. Takes just 5 minutes
Volumes and ejection fractions are then calculated for the ED and ES phases of the cardiac cycle and the 3D heart can be viewed on different planes. All study files can be stored on PACS.
Innovative Sensor Tracking System
This small, innovative device is designed to be attached to the ultrasound probe via a small adaptor, and thus enables patient repositioning during the examination without affecting the results.
The Ventripoint point of care solutuion, combining the KBR (Knowledge Based Reconstruction) artificial intelligence software algorithm and accurate sensor positioning allows users to accurately reconstruct 2D and 3D echo images into accurate 3D models and precision metrics including:
Heart structure sizes.
