People with cardiac physiology jobs may benefit from new research set to be undertaken at the University of Leicester.
The institution, which was founded in 1921 and received its Royal Charter in 1957 - has secured a grant to study and develop the use of cardiac angiography using CT scans to conduct near virtual autopsies.
A team from the university's East Midlands Forensic Pathology Unit will work on the project, which is being funding by the National Institute for Health Research.
Those involved hope it will lead to the development of a reliable and cost-effective method to diagnose coronary heart disease from the scans.
With the technology, experts will be able to visualise coronary arteries and cadavers and make diagnoses with the results.
Commenting on the project, its leader Professor Guy Rutty said: "The outcome of this research has the potential to affect every family in the future and is a significant contribution to the developing practice of using CT scans instead of autopsies."
