A patient twin to protect John’s heart
A patient twin that constantly watches over a person's health? For Siemens Healthineers, this is a vision for the early, targeted detection of heart disease that could become a reality in 10 years. Meet John, a “patient of the future”.
What if we could put patients and medical practitioners in a position to detect the progression of cardiovascular diseases and take appropriate countermeasures to contain them at an early stage? What if we could use digital twin technology to improve the quality of life for those affected and help them to live longer?
