Multifunction Cardiogram (MCG) is a completely new approach to the diagnosis of myocardial ischemia caused by coronary heart disease. MCG Technology utilizes systems analysis principles (reference 15) and is, to our knowledge, the first example of a commercially available information technology solution in the discipline of “Clinical Computational Electrophysiology.”
MCG is a problem solving technology that mathematically “decomposes a system (cardiovascular) into its component pieces for the purpose of the studying how well those component parts work and interact to accomplish their purpose” MCG solves an intractable problem – the lack of 1 accurate detection of myocardial ischemia caused by coronary artery disease. Following decades of research and development, through the diligent work of two generations of dedicated scientists, clinicians, and engineers, MCG technology has successfully demonstrated its capability in the detection of myocardial ischemia caused by obstructive coronary disease (CAD) in multiple independently conducted clinical validation trials (References 3 to 10) with high sensitivity (89-100%), specificity (83-94%), and accuracy (90 to 100%). For easy access, MCG digital signal analysis uses reporting servers available around the world 24/7/365 through the internet to deliver highly accurate, rapid, automatic, and objective cardiovascular functional assessments.
MCG’s capabilities for the detection of early, intermediate, and late stage myocardial ischemia go far beyond conventional diagnostic stratagem. MCG provides a uniquely positioned high-quality diagnostic tool to clinicians for making critical diagnostic and clinical management decisions in the a timely, affordable, and dependable manner at patient’s bedside in real time. Currently, MCG testing is reported by physicians with Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) Code 0206T . 2
