The Rhythm Theatre Symposium highlights promising results from European clinical studies using the Company's non-invasive mapping for persistent atrial fibrillation in over 300 patients.  The symposium, chaired by Dr. Francis Marchlinski (University of Pennsylvania Medical Center), will be held on Wednesday, May 7th from 6:15 to 7:15 PM in Rhythm Theatre #2, and include presentations from Dr. Douglas Packer (Mayo Clinic), Dr. Michel Haissaguerre (CHU Bordeaux) and Dr. Sebastien Knecht (CHU Brugmann, Brussels).  Topics include:

  • Clinical AF Mapping:  Back to the Future (Douglas L. Packer, M.D.)
  • A Practical Approach to AF Mapping:  AFACART EU Multicenter Study Results (Sebastien Knecht, M.D.)
  • The Bordeaux Experience (Michel Haissaguerre, M.D.)
  • Common Clinical Questions & Practical Considerations (Francis Marchlinski, M.D.)

"The ECVUE System and its unique non-invasive cardiac mapping clinical applications has been clinically proven in nearly 1,000 patients and in over 100 publications," stated Patrick Wethington, CardioInsight's President and CEO.  "CardioInsight, in partnership with leading EP clinical centers, is honored to advance both the science and clinical utility of the ECVUE system as reflected by the 17 abstracts and symposia presentations at the upcoming 2014 HRS Conference."

The abstract presentations, from leading medical centers, will demonstrate the broad clinical utility of the ECVUE system in mapping atrial and ventricular arrhythmias, as well as mapping for cardiac resynchronization therapy for heart failure.

* ECVUE is not yet cleared or approved for use by the FDA.  ECVUE has received CE Mark.

About CardioInsight Technologies Inc.

CardioInsight is developing and commercially validating a revolutionary technology that non-invasively generates 3D images of the electrical activity of the heart.  The images help physicians map electrical disorders of the heart.  The Company's ECVUE™ system non-invasively generates real-time, whole heart images of the electrical activity on the surface of the heart by combining body surface electrical data with 3D anatomical data obtained from imaging scans.  It then reconstructs and displays 3D images and other useful measures of cardiac electrical activity as if the measurements were taken directly from the surface of the heart.
