AmCAD-UO is ultrasound-based detection for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). While PSG diagnoses sleep disorder overnight, AmCAD-UO provides anatomical analysis for OSA detection for awake patients within 10 minutes, opening the door for immediate results at out-patient visits and clinics. With laser-guided auto-positioning and scanning, AmCAD-UO can precisely scan the upper airway and analyze the gap between normal breathing and Müller Maneuver models. AmCAD-UO system standardizes ultrasound transducer scanning to reduce intra-observer variations and make the assessment consistent.
