My research paper titled – Sensitivity of epicardial electrical markers to acute ischemia detection was accepted for publishing in the peer-reviewed journal – Journal of Electrocardiology. The article will be available in print, in the December 2014 issue of the journal.
Briefly, the research focuses on the electrical behavior of the heart during ischemic conditions, which is a precursor to myocardial infarction (heart attack). Specifically, the study evaluated different electrical markers and their ability to detect early onset of acute myocardial ischemia. The paper reported the findings from the study and can be accessed here.
Cardiovascular Research & Training Institute (CVRTI) is one of the premier heart research institutes in the country and affiliated with the University of Utah. The institute houses state of the art research facilities including our lab. You can learn more about CVRTI here.
Small Animal Imaging Facility (SAIF) is also affiliated with University of Utah. All of our anatomical scans of the heart, the micro-vasculature and cardiac fibers are acquired using their state of the art MRI (7 Tesla) and CT scanners. More information about SAIF can be found here.
Scientific Computing & Imaging (SCI) Institute is also affiliated with the University of Utah and is renowned for cutting edge research in scientific computing and visualization. We use several of their image processing and scientific visualization tools for our bio-signal visualization and analysis. More information about SCI can be found here
