8:30-9:00 Registration & Welcome Alistair Young
9:00-10:00 Keynote 1

  • Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance. Current status and future applications
  • Dr Sophie Mavrogeni (Onassis Cardiac Surgery Centre, Athens, Greece)

    Currently, Cardiac MRI is the ideal technique for cardiovascular morphology, function, tissue characterisation, myocardial inflammation, perfusion and fibrosis assessment. We expect that in near future Cardiac MRI will allow to detect early pathophysiologic changes at molecular level.

  • Model-based Large Scale Cardiac Analytics
  • Prof Dr Dimitris Metaxas (Rutgers University, USA)

    Over the last 20 years, we have been developing a general, scalable, computational framework that combines principles of deformable models, computational learning, sparse methods and mixed norms. This framework has been used for resolution of complex large scale cardiac analytics. We will present this framework and its application to cardiac analytics which include feature discovery for segmentation and 3D reconstruction of the cardiac chambers, cardiac MRI image reconstruction from sparse data, 3D spatiotemporal wall and blood flow analytics from CT. Finally, we will show quantitative analysis results of various cardiac diseases such as hypertrophy, dysynchrony and infarction.
