The results are then presented as a color-coded, 3-dimensional digital heart map which reflects electrical dispersions. The device allows the tester to observe the condition of the heart muscle, as well as the intensity of the heart stress load. The test uses new information from ECG fluctuations that are usually ignored as noise by regular ECG devices. An image of the patients heart, along with an electrocardiogram are produced. The HeartVue 6S System will be an invaluable screening tool for cardiologists, general practitioners, clinics, hospitals, the fitness industry, sports teams and emergency medical facilities.
