Details and patient eligibility


The goal of this multi-center observational study is to learn about the effectiveness of magnetocardiography in rapid and accurate identification of ischemia in patients with suspected NSTE-ACS.

Full description

Rapid and accurate Identification of ischemia in patients with chest pain suspected of non-ST-elevation-acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS) is of great clinical significance for timely and effective treatment. Magnetocardiography based on spin-exchange relaxation-free (SERF) principle can detect the weak magnetic field generated by the heart sensitively, which do not need ultra-low temperature cooling. Magnetic signal does not decay through the skin and tissues as electricity does, hence magnetocardiogram (MCG) contains more information of diagnostic value of ischemia. The aim of this observational study is to optimize and validate MCG models as a fast and accurate strategy for detecting coronary ischemia, as a shortage of blood supply to myocardium, in patients who suffer from chest pain, and compare to routine diagnostic means.
