Vital Images has received US FDA 510(k) clearance for a new option to its coronary artery calcium scoring software, VScore. VScore with EKG Gate enhances Vital's calcium scoring technology's ability to use image data from helical CT scanners, including those made by GE Medical Systems, says the Minneapolis, Minnesota company. It matches cardiac CT images with EKG signals and automatically identifies the images with the least motion, which can improve scoring accuracy. Both Vscore and Vscore with EKG Gate are integrated options of Vital's 3-dimensional visualisation and analysis software, Vitrea 2.
