MUNICH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--At the upcoming SCMR meeting in Orlando Florida at February 2nd -5th TomTec introduces its 2D Cardiac Performance Analysis© MR software product*. The tool to quantify myocardial function and deformation based on regular cardiac MRI cine imaging.

2D Cardiac Performance Analysis© MR allows a cardiologist to study the function of the heart muscle quickly and easily. Quantification of displacement, velocity and strain in individual muscle segments helps to assess e.g. hypertrophic cardiomyopathy or dyssynchrony of ventricles.

2D Cardiac Performance Analysis© MR is a feature tracking based analysis tool which supports 2D data from various cMR systems. It analyzes myocardial deformation in standard MR cine sequences and does not require specific acquisition modes like tagged imaging. Thus already existing patient data can be used for follow-up comparisons.

"Based on its modern feature tracking algorithm 2D Cardiac Performance Analysis© MR offers a robust and time saving analysis of myocardial deformation and therefore meets all the conditions to be implemented in a clinical setting" says Rolf Baumann TomTecs Vice President of Clinical Products and Innovations.

For further information, please contact Frank Schlau: fschlau@tomtec. Please come, see us and get a demo of our exciting new software at the Marriott World Center booth # 37 during the SCMR.
