Research areas

This subdivision aims at achieving a holistic system view on a patient's disease status and to better tailor therapies to the individual needs of a patient (precision medicine).

Imaging science & image guided therapy

The work is carried out with a focus on quantification & visualization. Examples of projects can be found here. Further focal points are:

  • Vascular imaging (with a focus on blood flow and fluid-structure interactions)
  • Cardiac imaging (with a focus on biomechanics, myocardial energetics)
  • Image guided therapy (for surgical and catheter based intervention)

Image processing with machine learning methods

Examples of projects can be found here. Another focus is:

  • Segmentation for diagnostic applications

Data science & machine intelligence

The work with a focus on data-based models & complex data analysis is carried out in close cooperation with DHZB Medical Data Science. Examples of projects can be found here. Further focal points are:

  • Machine and Deep learning
  • Visual analytics

Simulations & modelling by physiology based models

Examples of projects can be found here. Further focal points are:

  • Fluids & hemodynamic models (heart, valve, vascular)
  • Metabolic models
  • Biomechanical models
  • Electrophysiology models

Development & application of experimental methods for the validation of numerical models

Examples of projects can be found here. Further focal points are:

  • Measuring technology
  • Flow visualization
  • 3D printing
  • Mock circulation
  • Experimental blood damage
