Today’s simulations of cardiac hemodynamics are often based on simplified geometries that ignores complex shaped substantial features such as papillary muscles and trabeculae. If these simulations would have been more accurate they would have a big potential to aid diagnosis of cardiac function and to optimize treatment of patients with cardiac diseases.
Today’s methods for diagnosis of cardiac function often includes magnetic resonance, which is slower, more expensive and has lower resolution than computer tomography, which is used in Cordicity’s methods.
Cordicity’s technology is based on research at Linköping University, Sweden by the founders of the company. Details about this technology can be found in following articles:
