1. Technology Overview
The present invention disclosed a cardiac phantom for multimodality imaging comprising an atrial reservoir mimicking box, a bileaflet mechanical mitral valve, a bileaflet mechanical aortic valve, an aortic root, a left ventricle phantom, a phantom housing, three high strength nylon strings, six pneumatic cylinders, six solenoid valves and a microcontroller. The cardiac phantom is exclusively focusing on the left ventricle (LV) of the heart because LV has a high risk succumbing to various pathologies. Besides, the cardiac phantom utilizing functional mitral and aortic valves in the multimodality imaging studies to provide a better understanding of anatomy and physiology of the valves in the real heart.
