New math model of heart cell has novel calcium pathway

ntions. We have tested and validated the technology extensively in animal experiments and recently have started its application in humans."

Rudy's technology, instead of using 12 electrodes like EKG, uses 250 electrodes in a vest a patient wears. This vest takes the equivalent of 250 EKGs simultaneously, getting electrical data from the entire torso. At the same time, anatomical data that include the torso geometry and the shape and location of the heart are obtained via a CT scan.

"We obtain two pieces of information the EKG field on the body surface and the CT information for the geometrical relationship of the heart and torso" said Rudy. "Over the years, we've developed the mathematics and computer algorithms to combine these two pieces of information and solve for the electrical activity of the heart."

Rudy joined Washington University last September, bringing with him from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland a group of 22 people that includes two faculty members (Jianmin Cui, Ph.D., and Igor Efimov, Ph.D.), PhD students, and laboratory personnel. He is a professor of biomedical engineering, cell biology & physiology, medicine, radiology, and pediatrics He will establish an interdisciplinary center for the study of cardiac electrophysiology and arrhythmias, the Cardiac Bioelectricity and Arrhythmia Center (CBAC) with faculty in various departments in the School of Medicine and the School of Engineering and Applied Science.
