Premier Heart International, LLC

detecting heart disease by AI based technology

Our company specializes in analyzing electrocardiac information. Cardiac diseases such as cardiac infarction and angina are the top-ranking cause of death in many countries. We possess the technology for high-precision analysis of the electrocardiac information available from ordinary electrocardiograms by making use of our unique AI-algorithm comparing with 40,000 people's clinical data. This technology enables accurate judgment of heart conditions.

MCG- AI based new technology for medical world
- MCG - Detecting heart disease by AI
Premier Heart provides the new AI based ECG analysis service detecting the cardiovascular disease with non-invasive and high accuracy.
The name of product is MCG, standing for Multifunction CardioGram.
MCG is approved by US FDA (510K) and obtaining US CPT insurance Code, and it is practically used in medical sites worldwide.
The technology of MCG is taking advantage of AI, it automatically matches the patient ECG data with 40,000 people's clinical database, and issue a report with the severity of the disease in a few minutes.
We have licences of the manufacturer and sales of medical devices in Japan, and looking for the companies working together with handling AI and new technologies expecting the synergy for the new medical opportunities worldwide.
Technology features - Unique Frequency Analysis -
MCG is the new analysis technology practically used in medical sites by taking advantage of the AI technologies which have not been applied to use for clinical diagnosis so far.
The technology has the following three features -
(1)frequency analysis, 
(2)algorithm by AI, and
(3)database matching.

(1)Frequency Analysis
The frequency analysis technology is mainly used in mechanical engineering and acoustic engineering. For example, in non-destructive inspection of tunnels, the abnormality of the structure is inspected by hammering the walls of the tunnel and grasping the difference of the frequency structures of the sounds of its acoustic echos.
Also, when poultry farmers ship raw eggs to the whole sale markets, their inspecting machine gently hits the eggs and grasp the difference of the frequency structures of its acoustic echos of invisible cracks.
MCG is a technology that uses such technology for electrocardiography.
· In addition, frequency-based technology has already been used for biological information such as EMG and electroencephalograph.

(2)Algorithm by AI
The MCG algorithm defines the relations between the characteristics of the frequency level and diseases.
In MCG, we compare differences such as time lag, composition, and relationship between two leads of ECG(V5 and II lead) in frequency level, and hold such characteristics as 166 indexes.
In MCG, we also grasp these differences found in normal and abnormal people,and forming it in algorithm.
Through the researches over the past 30 years, Premier Heart formed the existence and combination of the index for diseases and systematized them as an AI based algorithm.

(3)Database
MCG holds approximately 40,000 clinical database including healthy people and patients with diseases.
The database consists of males and females from 14 years old to 100 years old.
The MCG system matches an ECG acquired from a patient with the database, analyzes the severity of the disease by its AI and reports the results.
Comparison with other devices
When comparing MCG to the medical devices with high accuracy, the most valued benefit of MCG is “non-invasive” (not damaging the patient’s body) with high accuracy.
For example, just like MCG, ECG test can be completed without invasion.(The patient only lies on a bed in a few minutes). However, it is said that the accuracy especially for the ischemic heart disease is not high, and hard to find the disease especially for without symptoms.(In some cases ischemic heart disease has no symptom and there is”Acute Coronary Symdrome” – suddenly attacked by chest pain.)

In stress ECG test,(which makes the patient to ride a bicycle during testing,etc.),it causes an increase in the heart rate of the patient,and
then there are possibility that causing anemia or syncope.
Also, some of the patients can not take this test because of joint pain etc.

In CT and scintigraphy, they are high accurate tests, but there is a problem of radiation exposure. Further, for using contrast agent, there is invasion such as injection of a contrast medium. Also, there are some patients with contrast contraindication.

Tests using catheter such as coronary angiography involves invasion such as injection of a contrast medium by injection and passage of a catheter from a wrist or foot vessel.

In this manner, various tests related to the heart disease differ in terms of disease condition, invasiveness, and accuracy.
Among such tests, MCG is the test which is non-invasive and high accuracy examining cardiac muscle cell activity through electricity of the heart.
