Cardiac Imaging by Wearable Ultrasound Device
There is a widespread increase in fatalities due to cardiac-related diseases. And for a long time, researchers have been working hard to find various solutions and to monitor the heart as easily and quickly as possible. Now researchers from the University of California, San Diego developed a wearable, non-invasive heart monitor device that can be worn easily for 24 hours.
This portable wearable system uses ultrasound to continuously capture high quality images and provide real-time data of the human heart. According to researchers, this device provides less exposure to radiation in comparison to current available devices. Furthermore, the device works during exercise also and is about the size of a postage stamp. The work has been described in the journal Nature.
