Viva-E Drug Testing System

Visit us at booth 3A-3 at the 50th Annual Meeting of TIAFT in Hamamatsu, Japan (June 3 – 8, 2012) to meet with a Siemens representative and discuss how we can meet your specific needs for drugs-of-abuse testing. The exhibition opens on Wednesday, June 6, and Thursday, June 7. Please go to the congress website for more detailed information.

Proven reliability. Powered by experience

Many echocardiographic parameters that are estimated from 2D datasets are based on assumptions that are not necessarily true. For example, in mitral regurgitation, 2D color Doppler measurements require an assumption of sphericity of flow for the calculation of effective regurgitant orifice (ERO) area using Proximal Isovelocity Surface Area (PISA). In many situations, the flow convergence area of mitral regurgitation is not a perfect sphere, preventing accurate calculations of ERO. Another example is the calculation of left-ventricular ejection fraction. Once again, certain assumptions are made concerning ventricular symmetry that – in certain instances such as patients with aneurysm – are unlikely to hold true.
