Consultation in Study Design and Technique Development

The Core leadership is available to assist investigators in:

  • Appropriate research design including cardiovascular imaging outcomes to be assessed, sample size determination, etc.
  • Development of new imaging approaches and techniques. Specific targets include:
    • impedance, to quantify total vascular load
    • local stiffness, to quantify local mechanical changes and remodeling
    • wall shear stress, to link vascular mechanics to mechanistic signaling
    • ventricular-vascular coupling, to measure heart reserve function
    • 3D strain, to measure regional myocardial contractility in all 3 directions with single beat analysis
