MitoScope: Minimally Invasive Device for Measuring the Energy Production Rate of Heart Tissue
The minimally invasive MitoScope assesses the metabolic rate of heart tissue in vivo, non-destructively, and in real-time. MitoScope measures the mitochondrial enzyme activity of the heart to provide unique insight that could improve the treatment of heart failure, coronary heart disease, diabetes, and many other diseases that alter myocardial metabolism....
