"The world of cardiovascular care is constantly evolving, and at Vasomedical, we aim for our technology to be at the forefront of the non-invasive alternative treatment category. We understand that the ACC continually reevaluates its guidelines and recommendations for the use of EECP Therapy, and as such, we look forward to sharing our progress and engaging in discussion with the medical community at the Annual Scientific Session," said Dr. Jun Ma, president and chief executive officer of Vasomedical, Inc.
"The ACC and Vasomedical share the same underlying goal, which is to advance the education and development of cardiovascular care so patients are aware of all of their options and receive optimal treatment," Dr. Ma continued.
