Industry outlook

CADScor helps doctors to identify cardiac patients, 97% of whom require no further risky invasive clinical testing. Acarix has positive feedback from private German users. A strategic alliance with MED will help sales in Germany. The Dan-NICAD II study evaluates the test in patients aged 30–39 with suspected stable coronary artery disease to aid key opinion leader acceptance of CADScor. The Seismo study explores the use of CADScor for the early diagnosis of heart failure. A US trial and sales are crucial for value development.
