Kit to Diagnose Heart Disease
The proposed technology is a heart disease diagnostics kit that uses multifractal analysis tests to produce an integrated, noninvasive diagnostic/prognostic approach for heart disease, prognostication, prediction of risk of sudden death, and prediction of response to therapy. Useful results from these tests can be made available in 15 minutes or less to several hours. A multifractal version of the ST alpha scaling coefficient and a multifractal version of the LT alpha offer additional useful information about cardiac disease. Researchers have also refined pre-existing multifractal analytic methods to eliminate the confounding effect of skipped/abnormal/ectopic beats, frequently found in the general population and patients with cardiac disease.
