The Oxford Cardiovascular Computed Tomography Programme
Since 2015, the group runs the Oxford Cardiovascular Computed Tomography Programme, in partnership with the Manor Hospital and Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, supporting the use of state-of-the-art cardiovascular CT imaging by groups within the University of Oxford. In collaboration with the Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IBME), we are currently developing new CT-based imaging applications that will improve the efficiency of CT scanning and we are generating new imaging biomarkers that will improve cardiovascular risk stratification (Fig. 6). In this context, the group also uses pre-clinical micro-CT as a tool to develop new imaging applications, translatable into clinical settings.

We participate in various clinical studies, supporting research within the partnership of the University of Oxford and the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. We also participate in multicentre clinical studies and we collaborate closely with various institutions in UK and abroad.
