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
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.
