iTEcho is a software bundle designed to analyze and visualize blood flow by using echocardiographic images on your own.
It is composed of two functions: VFM (vector flow mapping) and IVPD (intraventricular pressure difference).
This software bundle enables to evaluate velocity and pressure distributions in ventricles.
Features of iTEcho
Visualize blood flow from a single image of echocardiography
iTEcho (VFM: vector flow mapping) is a tool to visualize and quantify blood flow. It shows velocity vectors from the apical long-axis view with a color Doppler image.
Visualize and quantify intraventricular pressure differences
iTEcho can evaluate sucking force of the left ventricle with IVPD. The IVPD is calculated from color M-mode images of the left ventricle.
Flow velocity vectors are calculated independently from the beam angle.
Streamlines enables to visualize existence of vortices and flow collisions.
Extra cardiac workload caused by diseased turbulent flow.
Quantified evaluation of rotations of the fluid.
Wall Shear Stress
Quantitative evaluation of wall shear stress.
Oscillatory Shear Index
Quantitative evaluation of fluctuation in wall shear stress
Can iTEcho® software be used with Echo VFM images from Canon Medical Systems?
iTEcho® is only available for analysis on GE Healthcare or Philips device.
Can iTEcho® use the Echo VFM software with Philips images?
Yes, iTEcho® supports both GE Healthcare and Philips image data.
What is the output format for sending iTFlow analysis data to GateWay?
The output of the analysis results in iTFlow is:
Still image: PNG
Video: Sequentially numbered PNG images and WMV, MPEG4
Quantitative values: Text (CSV)
This is the basis of the system. As for the output format, we can modify it to fit your hospital's system, so please contact us for more information.
