CMIB develops modelling and imaging technologies in order to propose better ways to manage cardiovascular diseases. Our aim is to equip the cardiologist and clinical team with the tools that enable an early diagnosis, an accurate characterization of the current status, and a valid prediction of the evolution of the disease.
In essence, medical images allow us to look inside our body in a non-invasive manner, and computational models help us to interpret the information we capture in them. We look carefully into the shape of the heart, into its mechanical properties, and into the blood pressure in the central cardiovascular system.
Examples of the application of our technology is the identification of faulty valves, or the prediction of the outcomes of an ablation procedure that aimed to resolve atrial fibrillation.
