MISSION

 

 

 

The Cardiac Bioelectricity and Arrhythmia Center (CBAC) is an interdisciplinary center whose goals are to study heart rhythms and their disorders (cardiac arrhythmias), and to develop new tools for their diagnosis and treatment in the prevention of disabilities and cardiac death.

FOCUS ON A SPECIAL REPORT

Electromechanics of the Normal Human Heart In Situ

Rudy lab conducts first study of electromechanics of healthy, living human hearts

While there have been numerous studies of abnormalities in the human heart, there have not been studies of the electromechanics of healthy adult hearts — until now. CBAC Director Yoram Rudy, the Fred Saigh Distinguished Professor of Engineering, and Christopher Andrews, postdoctoral research scholar, Department of Biomedical Engineering, have completed the first study to combine electrocardiographic imaging (ECGI), a noninvasive method developed in the Rudy lab, with tagged MRI to study the electromechanics of healthy hearts in living humans.
