High Resolution 3-Dimensional Imaging of the Human Cardiac Conduction System From Microanatomy to Mathematical Modeling
August 07, 2017, via Nature Scientific Reports
The first micro-computed tomography 3D model of the cardiac conduction system in a living human heart was published in Scientific Reports. This will allow for more sophisticated models of heart function, with implications for heart surgery and drug discovery. MicroCT scanning was performed using both the Nikon Metris XTEK 320 kV and XTEK XTH 225 kV systems.
