Pie Medical Imaging has received NINSHO Medical Device Certification for CAAS Qardia, its echocardiography software platform, giving Japanese healthcare institutions access to the system.
CAAS Qardia is designed for myocardial strain analysis, stress-echo, diastolic function assessment, and (PISA) valve analysis. CAAS Qardia leverages artificial intelligence-driven workflows automating key clinical measurements and ease of access.
Ernest Spitzer, chief medical officer of Cardialysis Core Laboratory (Rotterdam, The Netherlands), and first author of the recently published CAAS Qardia myocardial strain validation paper, said: “Beyond the implementation of a standardised method, the use of automation may soon expedite the increased use of quantitative parameters in clinical routine.”
René Guillaume, managing director of Pie Medical Imaging, said: “With this certification of CAAS Qardia, an easy-to-use and accurate tool becomes available for Japanese healthcare institutions.”
