Electrostructural Tomography – Towards Multiparametric Imaging of Cardiac Electrical Disorders
The aim in this ERC project is to achieve a major advance in the way cardiac electrical diseases are characterised and thus diagnosed and treated, through the development of a novel non-invasive modality (Electrostructural tomography), combining magnetic resonance and non-invasive cardiac mapping technologies. This initiative will open a new field of research at the interface between imaging and electrophysiology, generating novel semiology with the potential to modify the current classification of cardiac electrical diseases. The results of this project can be expected to dramatically impact the tailored management of cardiac electrical disorders, with potential applications for diagnosis, risk stratification/patient selection, and guidance of pacing and catheter ablation therapies.
