CPlaque – a new tool for improved cardiovascular risk prediction in primary care
Using an ultrasound probe of pc ultrasound at a cost of about SFr 4’000 or even less (software included), you may image carotid arteries on your personal computer / laptop (windows system). Just plug in the probe in your USB and start imaging.
Using this tool, you may assess the absence or presence of carotid plaque within less than 60 seconds.
CPlaque allows for a rapid screening for carotid plaque. For atherosclerosis management, total carotid plaque burden is needed. Varifo offers courses for interested doctors to learn the method. Just call 062 213 05 10 and ask for “TPA COURSE”
