enverdis: CGM - Innovative Diagnosis of Myocardial Ischemia

three-dimensional image of electrical heart activity
Arteriosclerotic-induced coronary heart disease (CHD) and small vessel disease (SMD) in diabetes are the most frequent causes of myocardial ischemia. Early diagnosis means that the frequent after-effects - myocardial infarction or chronic heart failure - can be prevented, eliminating the most common causes of death.

Cardiogoniometry (CGM) by Sanz offers stress-free and non-invasive diagnosis of myocardial ischemia. It enables GPs to detect myocardial ischemia during routine screening.

The technique is a new and considerably simplified form of vector cardiography. Using only five electrodes, a three-dimensional image of electrical heart activity can be generated in only a few minutes and can be automatically and subjectively analysed for signs of ischemia.

The technique is very different to and a marked improvement on conventional Vectorcardiography. Using a different electrode configuration, in which only five electrodes are employed, three mutual orthogonal leads can be evaluated. This enables a three-dimensional representation of heart action currents and thus a spatial visualisation of heart stimulus conduction and repolarisation.

Various new parameters, such as floating and dihedral angles of stimulus conduction activities are automatically interpreted and processed in a variety of optional modes by the system.

The CGM software has been developed in co-operation with the originator of the technique, Dr. Ernst Sanz, and represents the optimal realisation of his findings collected over a period of 30 years. The accuracy of the automatically generated diagnostic suggestions is comparable with or even superior to the results of Ergometry.
