MyoFit46 is the cardiac sub-study of the NSHD funded by the British Heart Foundation and led by Dr Gaby Captur. It is an in-depth imaging study of the ageing human heart which is based on the use of cardiac MRI (CMR).
In MyoFit46 we combine the uniquely rich life course information from all your previous NSHD data collections with advanced methods of imaging heart health, to better understand life predictors of heart health. We feed all this information to supercomputers to build complex digital models of the beating whole-heart. Your personalised heart-Avatar will give us a holistic understanding of your heart’s health status and will help us predict your future risk of developing abnormal heart rhythms, and heart failure, amongst other things.
