New Study Finds Zio by iRhythm 10x More Effective in Proactively Identifying Atrial Fibrillation and Increasing Detection24.2.2021 17:00:00 CETPress release

iRhythm Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:IRTC), a leading digital healthcare solutions company focused on the advancement of cardiac care, today announced the results of a brand new “SCREEN-AF” study, led by researchers at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto, Canada and University Hospital in Leipzig, Germany, which was published in JAMA Cardiology. The transatlantic clinical trial found that Zio by iRhythm, an ambulatory cardiac monitoring solution, led to a tenfold increase in the detection of atrial fibrillation (AF) versus patients receiving standard clinical care. One out of every 20 patients in the heart monitoring group was found to have a new diagnosis of atrial fibrillation and, as a result, 75 percent of those patients were subsequently prescribed a blood thinner medication for protection against strokes. The study results lend support for Zio as a screening tool for early detection of AF. The results have important implications for stroke prevention, especially as the pre

KA Imaging to Present Poster on Unprecedented Lateral Dual-Energy X-ray Views at ECR 202124.2.2021 15:17:00 CETPress release

KA Imaging, a company that develops innovative X-ray imaging solutions, announced that a poster reporting on results from a study examining the feasibility of lateral chest dual-energy subtraction radiography using a stacked single-exposure multi-layer x-ray detectorwill be presented by Sebastian Maurino, a medical physicist at KA Imaging, at this year’s European Congress of Radiology (ECR). As highlighted in the poster, KA Imaging’s novel approach allows radiologists to take full advantage of lateral dual-energy images by obtaining both conventional and dual-energy subtraction lateral images simultaneously, thereby making it considerably easier to differentiate between materials behind the heart. Quoting directly from the poster, “The DE lateral image also visualizes calcified joints and masses behind the heart that are not visible in the [Posterior-Anterior (PA)] image. Multi-layer detectors were shown to provide DE PA and lateral images of the chest at conventional patient dose leve
