Novel imaging modalities for myocardial tissue characterisation

This research project focuses on non-invasive myocardial tissue characterisation by multi-modality imaging in healthy volunteers, athletes and patients with cardiac disease.

Our aims are to fill existing research gaps regarding myocardial fibrosis in athletes and patients with cardiac disease as well as to enhance non-invasive myocardial tissue characterisation by mechanical wave imaging using high frame rate echocardiography. This will potentially influence the diagnostics, treatment and follow-up of patients across a wide range of cardiovascular diseases. The project is performed in collaboration with our partners at the Centre for Innovative Ultrasound Solutions at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Oslo University Hospital and GE Healthcare.
