CardioInspect presented at Medica 2021


Imageens, a prominent French MedTech startup, had the privilege of participating in Medica 2021, where we unveiled our state-of-the-art solution, CardioInspect based on Artfun+ technology (link). This revolutionary technology is positioned to revolutionize cardiovascular risk assessment by offering predictive insights that extend up to 8.5 years into the future.

This innovation is rooted in vascular aging biomarkers, quantified through a certified technology classified as a Class 2a medical device in compliance with the European Union’s MDR regulations. It delivers a predictive score surpassing current risk assessments (e.g., CAC score, Carotid IMT, Framingham, etc.) and boasts clinical validation across several significant cohorts (+77 publications). Among these is the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA), spearheaded by Johns Hopkins, which tracked 3,675 patients over an 8.5-year period.

Cardiovascular diseases remain a global health challenge, affecting millions of lives and placing a significant burden on healthcare systems worldwide. With CardioInspect, Imageens aims to confront this challenge head-on by introducing a solution that offers unparalleled accuracy in forecasting a patient’s cardiovascular risk.

During the event, Jean-Yves Yan, Senior Software Engineer at Imageens, shared his expertise and highlighted the transformative capabilities of CardioInspect. Yan explained, “Consider a 35-year-old patient with an unfavorable lifestyle and specific risk factors. Our advanced technology can analyze the rigidity of their aorta and the efficiency of cardiac wall contractions. Surprisingly, this patient’s cardiovascular age might resemble that of an 85-year-old individual. The encouraging news is that with appropriate interventions and lifestyle adjustments, the patient can experience a significant reduction in their vascular age over time.”

By harnessing the potential of medical imaging and predictive algorithms, this innovative solution empowers both patients and healthcare providers with invaluable insights to develop more effective preventive care strategies.
