Abstract
We will develop a low cost instrument capable of recording the fetal magnetocardiogram (fetal-MCG).non-invasive instrument is intended to contribute to the assessment of fetal stress and the diagnosiarrhythmias. The fetal-MCG system provides unique information that is difficult or impossible to obtinstrument. The instrument will utilize, for the first time, digital SQUIDs for the critical sensorThe use of this new digital SQUID technology will dramatically reduce the cost of the system by elimvery expensive shielded room and by simplifying the electronics. In Phase I we will develop the digidesign the complete system, and calculate the expected system performance characteristics. In Phasedemonstrate at least one complete prototype suitable to initiate detailed clinical studies.
