Cardiovascular imaging and dynamics (Dept. Cardiovascular Sciences, K.U. Leuven) focuses on the development, validation and application of new imaging methodologies that can help in obtaining more insight in the patho-physiology of the heart and – as such – contribute to a better diagnosis and therapy of the individual cardiac patient.
"During the actual treatment, X-rays are mostly used. We intend to further develop this technology to make more use of ultrasound in the treatment phase – as we believe that we can learn vital information with ultrasound technology that X-rays can’t provide,” says Dr Eigil Samset.
