To Validate the Specific Patterns of Magnetocardiography, a Non-invasive Non-contact Examination for Patients With Ischemic Heart Disease or Cardiac Arrhythmia

Brief Summary

Official Title: “To Validate the Specific Patterns of Magnetocardiography, a Non-invasive Non-contact Examination for Patients With Ischemic Heart Disease or Cardiac Arrhythmia”

ECG is one of the most important non-invasive method to diagnose CAD and arrhythmia. However, clinically it still has its limitation. Because the electrical field could induce a magnetic field, the newly developed non-contact technique, magnetocardiography, was established to detect the local magnetic field component of the heart. It is safe and more convenient. In this study, we try to define and validate the magnetocardiographic patterns in the patients with cardiac arrhythmias or ischemia.

Criteria for Participation in this Clinical Trial

Patient enrollment:
