An algorithm developed by Ki H. Chon, PhD, head of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), in partnership with Snehraj Merchant of The ScottCare Corporation, makes it possible for a new heart monitoring system to detect incidents of atrial fibrillation (AF), the most common form of cardiac arrhythmia, far more accurately than previous methods. The algorithm, utilised in the new ScottCare CardioView Dx Suite, detects AF episodes with an accuracy of 95 percent - a dramatic improvement over the previous state of the art - and immediately flags them, obviating the need for a trained technician to spend hours analysing data...
