Short Axis Evaluation - Clinical Value


Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) is the second most common cause for Emergency Department visits. These patients expected to have wall motion abnormalities (WMA) in the area supplied by the affected vessel.


Traditionally, these assessments are done visually using eyeballing, which is inaccurate and not reproducible. Moreover, in the case of the wall motion abnormality even not possible with the naked eye.

LVivo SAX provides automatic measurements of:

  • Segmental Analysis – Wall Motion and Strain

  • Fractional area change (FAC)

  • End-systolic (ESA)

  • End-diastolic (EDS)

  • Global Circumferential Strain (GCS)

LVivo SAX also provides segmental function including wall motion evaluation and segmental circumferential straining a “Bullseye” diagram, and segmental score index.

LVivo SAX (Parasternal Short Axis) leverages AI to provide an automated LV size and segmental function evaluation from the parasternal Short Axis view.

It enables clinicians to assess global cardiac function in CHF and shock patients and to assess segmental abnormalities in patients with ACS (acute coronary syndrome). 


LVivo SAX has the potential to change the way we manage patients with suspected acute coronary syndrome
