Training doctors more effectively with the world’s first transesophageal echocardiography simulator based on real patient CT scans

Last year, over 15 million people died from heart disease. According to the WHO, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the world, but the way we train our physicians to diagnose heart conditions has not changed since the technology was developed in the 1990s. Today, cardiologists and surgeons train in three ways that are problematic—either on a living patient, which is dangerous, or on an animal or cadaver, which is not an accurate representation of what they encounter in the field. We have developed the world’s first transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) simulator based on the CT scans of real patients. The device allows doctors to more effectively train in the diagnoses and detection of a number of cardiac diseases. We have already gained strategic partnerships with Columbia University and the American Cardiovascular Research Foundation. In fact, Columbia University Medical School has placed their first order to purchase simulators from us. In 2017, we plan to sell our first batch of devices and expand to the U.S.

We are currently looking for collaborators and seeking capital investment.
