The Magnetocardiogram in Patients with Systolic and Diastolic Overload of the Right Ventricle
The second derivative gradiometer is expected to detect the current source from the right ventricle more specifically, where it is located close to the anterior chest wall because of its unique system. Therefore, we investigated the magnetocardiogram (MCG) in patients with right ventricular overload (RVO), and correlated the MCG findings with hemodynamic parameters. This study was also aimed to diagnose RVO in the presence of right bundle branch block (RBBB), which so far has been considered to be difficult to diagnose by the conventional electrocardiogram (ECG).
