Simple Phase Space
A simple example is an oscillating pendulum. The motion of an “ideal” pendulum is smooth and predictable, swinging at a constant width and rate. The back-and-forth movement can be mathematically modeled by phase space trajectory as a full circle.
Complex Phase Space
A healthy heart pumps through a series of coordinated contractions maintained by a carefully synchronized system. When a diseased heart pumps, it lacks normal synchronization and coordination. With Phase Space Tomography, we can measure and map irregular cardiac signals without radiation or exercise stress to produce Phase Space Tomographic images. These images identify informative patterns that can be indicative of heart disease.
