High-fidelity Cardiovascular Modeling from Super-Fast Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Project description

Patient-specific cardiovascular modeling

Patient-specific cardiac modelling relies on clinical data obtained from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). However, MRI fails to provide kinematic information of thin structures such as cardiac valves and the arterial wall. To address this shortcoming, the EU-funded CardioZoom project proposes a new paradigm in biophysical computational models of the cardiovascular system. In this respect, scientists aim to replace long MRI scans with short time scans and at the same time obtaining reliable information on delicate cardiac structures. The novel CardioZoom approach will be validated in volunteers and is expected to lead to the detailed characterisation of the cardiovascular system on an individual patient basis.
