This technology enables the early detection of heart disease with little impact on the body while taking the measurement. This joint research by TDK and the Tokyo Medical and Dental University is aimed at visualizing the movement of the heart by using magnetic sensors. It can be applied not only for measurement and diagnosis, but is also expected to have important applications in sports science and healthcare. Four experts in medicine and MONOZUKURI (manufacturing excellence) discuss this latest trend in biomagnetic field sensing.
