In a major stride in cardiac research, German scientists have developed one of the world`s most powerful magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems - nearly 150,000 times as strong as the earth`s magnetic field - to provides the sharpest and clearest images of the beating heart ever recorded in medical history.
"We correlated the image exposure with the heartbeat," explains the study investigator Prof Thoralf Niendorf. "Our procedure is immune to interference with strong magnetic fields so that we can compensate for the motion of the heart which results in high image quality free of cardiac motion induced blurring and artifacts," he added.IANS
