FIGHT-HF: Fighting Heart Failure

French RHU programme, 2016-2021

Involvement : Partner ; Leader of WP 3.2 (Cardiac tissue characterization by MRI and electro-imaging)

Main collaborators : CIC Nancy, Schiller MĂ©dical, LIRYC (Bordeaux)

Description :

Within the FIGHT-HF project, we are investigating novel cardiac tissue characterization techniques in order to identify imaging biomarkers for heart failure. We are also developing a novel imaging modality called electro-imaging, combining cardiac MRI and body surface ECG. For that purpose we are developping novel MR-compatible ECG devices. Finally we are investigating novel MR imaging contrast mechanisms related to electrical properties of the tissues.
