Evolution of Magnetocardiography (MCG)

Magnetocardiography (MCG) has been assessed over the last 25 years as a noninvasive, radiation-free, rapid diagnostic tool for various forms of cardiac pathophysiology. MCG creates images based on the natural magnetic fields that are generated by the electrical activity of the heart. Reduced blood flow to heart muscle cells reduces their ability to create normal electrical patterns and therefore the magnetic fields become abnormal. These images can be assessed either only at rest or in an exercise format as described above without need for any imaging tracers or contrast material. New improvements to MCG technology have created more practical medical devices that are faster and more accurate than stress tests currently leveraged by the standard of care.
