The Micro Volt T-Wave Alternans, is a non-invasive device which can pick up the electronic discrepancies in the beating heart. It can predict if a patient is more susceptible to heart failure up to 99 percent.
The Food and Drug Administration approved this machine last year for use, and the Carolina East Cardiology Center is the first to use it in Eastern Carolina.
The machine cost about $40,000 and we're told most insurance companies will pay for the procedure.
