Premier Heart Asia - 3DMP goes on tour
    Premier Heart is actively preparing to launch our 3DMP/mfEMT technology in the Asia-Pacific market in 2009. As part of this process we have opened communication with medical device distributors and physicians in Japan, where the 3DMP/mfEMT technology has received a warm reception.
    I think the ischemia diagnosis mechanism developed by Dr. Joseph Shen is really ground-breaking as a very useful tool for the diagnosis of ischemic heart disease, which is on the rise in Japan.  . . .  Moreover, I am highly interested in its utility not only in stable but also unstable angina and NSTEMI.

New England Journal of Medicine articles call attention to shortcomings of CT Angiography

November 20, 2008
TheHeart.org article on the shortcomings of conventional ECGs published.
    An article in Clinical Cardiology has been published discussing the shortcomings of conventional ECG technology (both resting surface ECGs and exercise stress testing) as a diagnostic tool for patients with chest pain.
    Premier Heart's 3DMP/mfEMT system represents a quantum leap beyond these traditional methods, providing a level of accuracy that makes it a valuable diagnostic tool in patients with chest pain as well as asymptomatic patients.
