Current research focus

The aim of our research is to improve diagnostics and treatment of cardiovascular diseases and to increase knowledge about myocardial function. The research activities include cardiovascular imaging by echocardiography, MR and CT and how to best combine more than one imaging modality. Another important research area is development of new diagnostic tools. Clinical problem settings are tested in experimental models and the translation aspect involves close cooperation with the Institute for Surgical Research and the Interventional Centre at Rikshospitalet University Hospital.
