BHF, Reflections of Research image competition, U.K., 4-D MRI, heart blood flow

This image shows blood flow within the main pumping chambers – the ventricles – on both sides of the heart and the vessels leaving the heart. The blue flow is blood that needs oxygen and is travelling to the lungs. The red flow is blood that has been through the lungs and received oxygen. Victoria Stoll of the University of Oxford is using this type of imaging to look at the blood flow within the hearts of people with heart failure, whose hearts are not pumping effectively.

A 3-D view on the Echopixel system of a MitraClip implantation showing one clip deployed and a second about to be deployed. The images can be rotated on any axis and sliced through to show cross sectional views of the anatomy and the device in true 3-D with glasses. Echopixel is working toward a system that uses a special screen that will eliminate the need for glasses.

McKesson, iPad, CVIS, ECG mobile viewer

Dynamic ECG waveforms displayed on an iPad using McKesson's mobile ECG viewer, which directly connects to the hospital's cardiovascular information system or ECG management system. This technology can help speed triage of STEMI patients, allowing diagnosis anywhere, rather than requiring cardiologists to walk down to an emergency department or drive into the hospital to view the ECG.
