Cardiovascular Biomechanics

In the Cardiovascular Biomechanics group our research is focused on development of computational models of the human cardiovascular system. We combine computational biomechanics, advanced 2D and 3D imaging methods, and state-of-the-art ultrasound techniques for quantification and visualisation of blood flow and soft tissue motion. This is applied in patient-specific finite element based models to gain more and new knowledge of cardiovascular biomechanics in health and disease. The simulation models are also used for evaluation of the precision and accuracy of new imaging technology like 3D vector flow imaging and blood pressure estimation.
