MRI Cardiac software and workflow solutions. Prova Images

Patent and Intellectual Property

A US Patent was issued on December 9, 2008 (Patent 7,463,919) for synchronous and simultaneous viewing of stress wall motion, stress perfusion and delayed enhancement images, to provide the capability to automatically display these images to improve speed of interpretation and diagnostic accuracy. Prova Images has an exclusive worldwide license to this patent.

This functionality allows the physician to make rapid comparisons to detect and confirm wall motion abnormailities and perfusion defects during the study and determine causation by prior or silent infarcts, or by coronary stenosis. The automatic registration of these three procedures in the typical CMR workup improves accuracy, time to diagnosis and study throughput.
