Functional heart imaging plays a major role in the diagnosis of heart valves functionality. If the diagnosis of the valve is abnormal, functional imaging helps in determining the degree of its abnormality and severity of the problem. Furthermore, it could help in catheterization planning and/or valve replacement surgery.Functional heart imaging is the best method for detection failure or abnormality in the functionality of the heart and determines its status. The data acquired by the functional heart imaging gives clues about the health of the heart valves.
The project main motivation is to provide a new, fast, and real-time functional heart imaging techniques which based on the acquired PCG signal using non-uniform microphones array. This technique is proposed to improve the diagnosis of the heart valves conditions. In addition, the proposed system provides a new method for imaging based distributed sound sources.
Milestones and expected result:
Provide new heart imaging technique.
Providing new sound source localization and image reconstruction technique.
Proof our proposed simulation of the new heart sound imaging using real human chest phantom.
The results of phantom based tests will be used to approve clinical test of the proposed system
