Lung M-Mode
The Lung M-Mode app provides the M-mode capability specifically to support the assessment of lung and documentation of signs like seashore. After entering this lung M-mode tool, a centered vertical M-mode cursor line will be applied to generate the anatomical M-mode display. Such tool will be enabled for linear transducer with lung preset and sector transducer with cardiac preset (the recommended preset for lung assessment with the sector transducer).

LVivo EF*
LVivo EF app is an FDA-cleared EF app that calculates ejection fraction, end-systolic and end-diastolic left ventricular volumes by automated edge detection of the left myocardial wall using apical 4-chamber views. This app has been developed by and licensed from DiA Imaging Analysis Ltd.
