Aortic stenosis (AS) is one of the most common acquired heart defects in adults. Echocardiography is a primary diagnostic tool to assess the severity of this pathology. The assessment of aortic stenosis requires complex measurements that take considerable amount of time and should be performed by an experienced specialist. Accurate evaluation is very important in choosing a further treatment strategy for a patient.
Ligence Heart software allows fully automatic estimation of AS degree by calculating all measurements required to evaluate the area of aortic opening. Just imagine how this would enable early detection and redefine differential diagnosis of AS if such tool was readily available to GPs and emergency department physicians!
