US Q-App Vascular Plaque Quantification (VPQ)

A novel measurement of atherosclerotic plaque volume
US Q-App Vascular Plaque Quantification (VPQ) helps you perform comprehensive volume analysis for carotid plaque; a significant indictor in cardiovascular disease. Automatically measure plaque composition throughout a captured volume, percent area vessel reduction and other characteristics using 3D technology. Results may be posted to patient exams.
