Cardiac MRI Analyst
I work in AVIC as a cardiac MRI analyst. My research focuses on identification of biomarkers that predict left ventricle recovery after acute myocardial infarction using different techniques of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (CMR) imaging.
In the OXAMI (Oxford Acute Myocardial Infarction) study, we are exploring the utility of CMR parametric mapping techniques and blood flow quantification to assess myocardial viability. During my PhD I worked on a new technique to determine the arterial stiffness in humans non-invasively and I investigated the potential use of new 1D mathematical models to describe wave propagations in arteries.
