CSIRO has developed a heart sound analysis device that has the potential to revolutionise the early detection and management of heart disease

Top
CSIRO has patented a non-invasive heart monitoring technology with the potential to be used in inexpensive preventive diagnostic products, aimed at identifying early signs of heart disease and so reducing the burden of heart problems on the medical system, and on individuals and their families.

the heart monitor, which is about the size of a mobile phone, is placed against the chest. The monitor emits very low power radio frequency energy, some of which is scattered by the chest wall and heart. This scattered radio energy is picked up by the monitor and can be displayed on standard digital display devices. The wave form generated by the scattered radio energy has similar characteristics to aortic pressure signals, indicating dynamic parameters of the heart.
