Medtech group VentriPoint Diagnostics Ltd (CVE:VPT) gave another operational update on Tuesday, saying its VMS+ technology for the heart was now being used for analysis of the left ventricle as well as the right by an internationally renowned pediatric cardiologist in Germany.

As reported earlier this week, Ventripoint extended its reach into the heart imaging market as it revealed its VMS+ software had been approved for analyzing 3D echo images generated by any commercially available 3D echocardiography system.

Renowned Dr Kai Thorsten Laser has now begun using the VMS+ software for 3-D echo analysis of the left ventricle at the HDZ NRW Heart and Diabetes Center in Germany, the firm said in a regulatory release Tuesday.

"We have experienced very positive results and accuracy using Ventripoint's VMS+ system on the right ventricle," said Dr Thorsten Laser.

"We now look forward to performing 3D analysis to validate accuracy of volumes of the left ventricle and in turn, improve cardiac patient care," he added.

Now that the company's software has been approved for all four chambers of the heart, the hospital will be using the Ventripoint VMS+ system for left ventricular volume analysis, particularly for pediatric patients.

There are many potential applications for this innovative technology, the firm says, which provides confidence in the volumetric measurements of patients with accuracy comparable to cardiac MRI.

Shares in Toronto were unchanged at $0.185.
