Supersensitive magneto-cardio-graphic system for early recognition, precise diagnostics and monitoring of heart diseases

Description

Magneto-Cardio-Graphy (MCG) is a contact free measurement method. It is an excellent tool to perform studies for early detection and recognition, precise diagnostics and monitoring of heart diseases.

The electro-physiological behavior of the heart may be altered in disease and drug intervention, presumably by changes in individual ion currents or disease induced increased ion channel density. During myocardial activation and recovery there is a flow of ions, which creates changes of electrical and magnetic field around the heart. The hearts magnetic field is exquisitely sensitive to anisotropy ratios in the cardiac tissue. Therefore, magnetic imaging of cardiac action currents is an ideally suited technique for testing the heterogeneity, thus elucidating the effects of anisotropy in spread of action currents.

Innovative Aspect and Main Advantages

MCG is modern imaging and quantitative analysis technique for detection abnormal difference in electrophysiological cardiac phenomena.
MCG is a non-invasive and informative method which could be effectively used a variety spectrum of clinical setting.
It is a useful tool for early patient screening and diagnosis. It can be used in an unshielded environment.

Areas of Application

MCG can be used for non-invasive diagnosis of cardiac events related to :

  • coronary artery disease (CAD),
  • safety of all medical drugs with respect to the drugs potential to cause heart arrhythmia,
  • early detection of graft rejection after cardiac transplantation,
  • patho-physiological role and therapeutic potential of stem cells.
