Diastolic-PM: diastolic biomarkers based on physiological models

Grantholder:

Dr Pablo Lamata

King's College London

United Kingdom

Pablo is investigating the diastolic performance of the heart. He is developing new methods to measure the heart's speed of relaxation, the compliance of the muscle, and the pressure driving the blood flow during the filling phase of the heart cycle. The methods are based on the combination of recent advances in magnetic resonance imaging and computational cardiac modelling.
