Measuring the Heart's Magnetic Field
The CardioFlux Magnetocardiograph™ is a non-invasive biomagnetic measurement tool intended to detect and record the magnetic fields that are naturally generated by the electrical activity of the heart. This magnetic field is produced as a result of myocardial contraction and relaxation. Our device is comprised of a dense array of magnetometers and a magnetic shield to measure and isolate the heart’s magnetic field. Scanning requires no patient contact, exposure to radiation, or exercise.
Innovative Approach to Cardiology
Magnetocardiography is the science that has enabled us to measure the magnetic fields produced by the heart. We are bringing 40 years of magnetocardiography into the heart of hospital workflows by improving the most limiting aspects of the science. Previous applications of magnetocardiography relied on expensive magnetically shielded rooms and liquid helium cooled magnetometers. Our device features a cylindrical magnetic shield covering a hospital bed and a grid of optically pumped magnetometers that cover a patient’s chest. These innovations make room-sized magnetic shields and liquid helium things of the past.
CardioFlux™ only needs 90 seconds to capture the necessary biomagnetic data. As soon as a successful scan is complete, it is immediately processed to generate a magnetic field map. Results will appear in our online portal for physician review within minutes after the scan is complete. This process can take an estimated 5 minutes for each patient.
Powered by Cloud Software
The data collected by CardioFlux is used to generate dynamic images that visualize cardiac electromagnetic activity. These images are created by our cloud technology platform, Faraday Analytical Cloud™. Faraday integrates with a hospital’s clinical systems to allow doctors to seamlessly order scans, receive results, and generate patient reports.
