Virtual stethoscope recordings from biomechanics simulations (left) can be used to develop an algorithm which can accurately recognize acoustic features of heart sounds from healthy (right; top) and stenotic (right; bottom) aortic valves. This technology can alleviate the diagnostic subjectivity of manual auscultation and enable at-home, inexpensive self-monitoring.

Computer-assisted auscultation proves effective at detecting early-stage heart disease

Johns Hopkins mechanical engineers have developed an algorithm that “listens” to heart sound recordings and detects heart disease with an accuracy that is similar to that of expert cardiologists.
