The company seeks to establish feasibility and market potential of vascuCAP, the company’s vascular disease computer-aided prognostic software that detects vulnerable atherosclerotic plaques. The goal of vascuCAP’s Phase I research is to extend beyond static diagnostics by developing an integrated segmentation, registration and classification MRI scan and computer-aided analysis toolkit for prognosis prediction of stable or unstable plaque from longitudinal MRI data.
