Aibody Collaborates with German Heart Centre Berlin to Advance Diagnosis and Treatment of Congenital Heart Disease
4 August 2022 - - UK-based Physiology-as-a-Service platform Aibody has signed a collaboration agreement with the German Heart Centre Berlin, a medical research institute specializing in cardiovascular disease, the company said.

This agreement focuses on the development of a suite of innovative solutions that will facilitate the diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart disease.

The collaboration will utilize Aibody's digital human physiology engine to create a lifelike, highly detailed 3D and 4D model of a beating human heart, capable of replicating the broad range of cardiovascular pathologies found in patients with congenital heart defects.

Informed by clinical data shared by the DHZB cardiology team, the model will become a dynamic learning resource for practicing and trainee clinicians worldwide, including cardiologists, pediatricians and radiologists, expanding their working knowledge of congenital heart defects and helping them more effectively recognize such conditions in actual patients.

Once the educational resource is complete, AIBODY will proceed to develop AI tools that will automatically extract features from cardiac sonograms to create an anatomically accurate, "digitally twinned" 3D and 4D model of a patient's heart, providing a diagnostic aid to doctors and radiologists to help optimize personalized diagnosis and treatment for each patient.

Aibody is a cloud-based Physiology-as-a-Service platform that offers real-time, immersive medical simulations using the world's first digital human organism.

Aibody's approach produces highly detailed, lifelike physiological responses to virtually any simulated medical condition or treatment protocol, recreating interrelated biophysical, physiological, and biochemical processes occurring within a human body.

Aibody has been spun off from AUG Global, the international technology group, and raised a seed funding round from leading global venture capital firms.

The German Heart Centre Berlin (Deutsches Herzzentrum Berlin) is a hospital and medical research center specializing in the treatment of cardiovascular and thoracic diseases, implantation of mechanical circulatory support systems, and heart and lung transplantation.
