With the Acarix CADScor®System Acarix can provide an easy to use non-invasive tool able to rule out CAD with 96% negative predictive value. Christiansen concludes: “this translates into a potential to reduce onward patient referrals by ~50%. – a win-win for patients, payers and physicians,” says Søren Rysholt Christiansen, CEO of Acarix.
