“Given the outstanding clinical utility of the BVA-100 platform in conjunction with recent peer-reviewed studies showing that the BVA-100 reduces heart failure readmissions by 56% and mortality by over 82%, the timing is perfect for clinicians to embrace this technology. The BVA-100 offers the opportunity to improve patient care and maximize key performance metrics and economics for hospital systems for heart failure, ICU care, and other medical and surgical conditions. I look forward to supporting the entire Daxor team in developing and growing the business, “said Guido Manzo.
