Current research focus

Cardiovascular function, imaging and biomechanics

  • Investigate mechanisms of LV diastolic dysfunction.
  • Investigate mechanisms of LV dyssynchrony and develop better methods for selecting patients for cardiac resynchronization therapy.
  • Investigate LV mechanical-electrical interactions and their impact on risk for ventricular arrhythmias
  • Develop better diagnostic methods to differentiate between viable and necrotic myocardium in acute coronary occlusion.
