RESEARCH LINES

ACQUISITION OF CARDIOVASCULAR IMAGES

With the aim of improving the time-space resolution of the cardiovascular magnetic resonance images, through the development and adjustment of new methods of reconstruction from sub-sampled data that develop the redundancy of information.

QUANTIFICATION OF CARDIOVASCULAR PARAMETERS

Quantify biomechanical and hemodynamic parameters in a non-invasive manner in the vessel wall and in the myocardium, integrating numerical models with images of cardiovascular magnetic resonance of time-space high resolution.

PRELIMINAR CLINICAL TRIALS

Find new quantitative parameters of the cardiac function and hemodynamic from the cardiovascular magnetic resonance images, that allow differentiating between healthy volunteers and patients with atherosclerosis and cardiac insufficiency.

TRIALS IN A PRE CLINIC MODEL

Identify early biomarkers derived from the cardiovascular magnetic resonance images that allow predicting the progression of the atherosclerotic disease and cardiac insufficiency.
