***Faster, User Friendly Cardio AI Imaging Product for Commercial Roll Out***


Toronto, Ont. — TheNewswire --- March 04, 2024 — Ventripoint Diagnostics Ltd. ("Ventripoint" or the "Company"), (TSXV:VPT); (OTC:VPTDF) released a significant upgrade to the design and function of its whole-heart analysis system (VMS+3.2), which accelerates imaging, analysis and ease of use at the point of care.


The new design allows immediate calibration by technicians with existing ultrasound equipment  to more quickly generate 2D ultrasound images, which the VMS+3.2 turns into a high-definition 3D heart model. The upgraded system also includes an improved 3D visualization tool, which speeds up and facilitates the analysis of 3D ultrasound exams.


VMS+3.2 release improves the ease-of-use of 2D and 3D echocardiogram procedures for sonographers, cardiologists and caregivers, assuring seamless integration of Ventripoint technology into patient-care workflow and standard of care. In a busy echocardiography unit, reducing the time for a procedure without compromising the quality of the results is a constant challenge and the VMS+3.2 will be appreciated for these innovations.


“We are constantly improving the design of our system, to generate efficiencies and better outcomes,” said Ventripoint’s Interim CEO, Hugh MacNaught. “This is a best-in-class diagnostic tool that allows enhanced echocardiograms of infants and adults to be available faster and at less cost than a cardiac MRI, with equivalent structural and functional results.”


The new design removes the magnet from the probe-tracking system and so it is now immune to environments where magnetic fields are present and is no longer a concern for implanted patient medical devices, such as pacemakers and other cardiac devices, where magnets can be disruptive. The Company intends to submit to regulatory agencies for the removal of this limitation on the VMS+ system.  


Ventripoint’s technology is now being used in leading hospitals in Europe, the UK, Canada, China and the United States as an alternative to traditional MRI heart scans. These users will be offered the VMS+3.2 upgrade for a fee and future sales will be of the VMS+3.2 version.  The Company is now focused on expanding the user base in hospitals and clinics worldwide.


The Company has a world-class board of clinical advisors who continue to provide ideas for design improvements, which are ongoing.  The company expects to announce additional enhancements in 2024, which will require regulatory approvals and enable VMS+ to be used with a wider range of patients.  It is important to note that these future upgrades are software improvements, which can be seamlessly integrated into existing and new VMS+ units.
