Reasearch projects

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 Médical, 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

ALVALE: Anatomical Localization of the origin of Ventricular Arrhythmias from the 12-Lead ECG

EU Eurostars programme, 2016-2018 Involvement : Partner Main collaborators : Peacs (Netherlands), Schiller AG (Switzerland), Radboud University (Netherlands), University Hospital of Basel (Switzerland), Lucern University (Switzerland) Description : Within the ALVALE project, we are investigating ways to select a model of the patient conducting model for electrocardiographic imaging (ECGI). ECGI aims at reconstructing cardiac activation

BERTI: Biomedical Imaging & Informatics

EU FP7 Marie Curie programme, 2014-2017 Involvement : Partner; Leader of WP 3 (Cardiac MRI) Main collaborators : Technical University Munich, General Electric Global Research Center Munich Description : Within the BERTI project, we are developping novel MRI acquisition, reconstruction and post-processing techniques to improve the workflow of cardiac MRI.
