Paper Abstract

Heart failure (HF) has a large impact on patient outcomes and health care costs. Objective monitoring of the pitting edema level of a HF patient may help clinicians reduce the amount of readmissions. ChemImage is developing a Molecular Chemical Imaging (MCI) device for monitoring HF patients that will non-invasively quantify peripheral edema. Results from a completed in-human clinical trial will be presented demonstrating ability to discriminate between healthy volunteers and HF patients with all levels of pitting edema and correct prediction of peripheral edema grade across the patient population. Follow-on clinical trials will address monitoring patients during treatment.
