MCG is secondary only to a coronary angiogram . . . in terms of its prognostic ability.

Premier Heart's MCG technology has earned the respect and support of many leading figures in the medical community, including Mr. Peter Nichols, current chairman of the board of Boston Scientific Corporation and Dr. Eberhard Grube, chief of cardiology and angiology at the Siegburg Heart Center in Germany.

Some of our clients and supporters have been kind enough to offer their views on the clinical utility and future potential of the MCG technology, a selection of which have been reproduced below.
For additional information you may contact us, or contact one of our clients.

Clinical Users

Dr. Charles K. Micelli, M.D., F.A.C.P., F.A.A.C., F.C.C.P.
Massapequa, NY

Dr. Micelli has been using Premier Heart's MCG technology since early 2008, and has incorporated it into his daily practice as a major tool for the detection of coronary artery disease. He has praised the MCG system as "an invaluable tool which is on the cutting edge of technology", seeing MCG as "a major breakthrough that will revolutionize cardiology".
Dr. Micelli's reference letter

Dr. Franz Ritucci, M.D.
Orlando, FL

Dr. Ritucci is a front-line physician specializing in Urgent Care and Emergency Medicine. His team has been using the MCG system since January of 2008, and has been a strong advocate of its use in the Emergency and Urgent Care settings.
Dr. Ritucci has noted that MCG "is able to identify patients . . . with significant coronary stenosis" in cases where traditional diagnostic modalities, with the MCG diagnosis subsequently validated through cardiac catheterization. Additionally, he has praised the high negative predictive value of the MCG system, "which is beneficial in preventing patients with an abnormal or equivocal stress test from having to undergo costly catheterization".

Dr. Howard L. Sacher, M.D.
Massapequa, NY

Dr. Sacher and his colleagues began using the MCG system in mid-2008 as part of their suite of tools for diagnosing coronary artery disease. They have found the MCG results to correlate with their expectations based on clinical indicators and risk factors.

Dr. H. Robert Silverstein, M.D., F.A.C.C.
Hartford, CT

Dr. Silverstein was one of Premier Heart's earliest clinical users, and has been using our MCG system for seven years. In his appraisal of the MCG system Dr. Silverstein noted that "it is the uncanny ability of the MCG EKG to reveal safety as well as danger", noting that in his experience our technology is "secondary only to a coronary angiogram".
Dr. Silverstein's Reference Letter

Dr. John E. Strobeck, M.D., Ph.D.
Hawthorne, NJ

Dr. Strobeck is the founder and medical director of Heart-Lung Associates of America, one of America's leading cardiac care specialty groups. He has been uing Premier Heart's technology in his practice since February of 2008, and has been an outspoken advocate of the benefits of the MCG technology for both detecting and ruling out coronary artery disease.
Dr. Strobeck "was astounded by the accuracy with which [MCG] was able to identify patients . . . with significant coronary stenosis", particularly in cases where other conventional diagnostic tools produced negative results. He has also praised the ability of MCG analysis to detect conditions in patients with normal results from traditional diagnostic tools.
