A 'virtual heart' to simulate arrhythmia

20:00 EDT 5 Sep 2017 | AAAS

(Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology) A group of researchers from MIPT and Ghent University have proposed a mathematical model which is able to determine the factors responsible for the formation of different fibrosis patterns, which are believed to cause arrhythmia. To reproduce the formation of cardiac tissue, the researchers took a mathematical model -- one that is widely applied to study tissue growth -- and optimized it using the previously collected experimental data.
