Researchers at the University of Birmingham Dubai in the United Arab Emirates have developed open source software that can predict the risk of potentially deadly heart maladies.

Said the university’s Kashif Rajpoot, "By using novel data analysis strategies we have developed, this software will provide a deeper understanding of heart diseases, particularly the mechanisms underpinning potentially lethal arrhythmia."

The heart's electrical behavior can be gauged via optical mapping, which up to now has lacked data processing and analysis software to encourage widespread use.

The University of Birmingham's Davor Pavlovic said, "The new software can detect, map, and analyze arrhythmic phenomena for in silico, in cellulo, animal model, and in vivo patient data."
