Journal of Physiology Article from Trayanova F1000 prime recommended


The recent Journal Review article, “Placement of implantable cardioverter-defibrillators in paediatric and congenital heart defect patients: a pipeline for model generation and simulation prediction of optimal configurations”, published in the September 1, 2013 issue of The Journal of Physiology 591, has been recommended as being of special significance in its field by Macdonald Dick and Ira Shetty from the F1000 Faculty. From F1000: “The authors developed an innovative non-invasive (‘virtual’) advanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique to reconstruct torso-heart models in order to simulate defibrillation and cardioversion thresholds in complex cardiac malformations… This technique may prove to be useful when faced with one or more of a complex anatomy, a small patient and heart, and the need for life-long multiple replacements of implantable ICDs.”
