Project: “Electro-Imaging for the preDICtion of Ventricular TACHyarrhythmia”

Acronym MEIDIC-VTACH (Reference Number: JTC-2019_048)
Duration 01/05/2020 - 30/04/2023
Project Topic Patients suffering from heart failure are at risks of developing Ventricular Tachycardia (VT). VT is responsible for about 80% of the sudden cardiac deaths. There is a need to develop a better stratification of patients at risk of developing VT. The fusion of imaging and electrophysiology modalities, electrocardiographic imaging (ECGI) was recently introduced to enable a non-invasively visualisation of the cardiac electrophysiology. ECGI is an exciting avenue of research for several cardiovascular applications, including risk stratification for VT. Our main objective is to develop a novel technique for the fusion of information provided by Electrocardiogram (ECG) data, mechanical information of the heart provided by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), and rhythm information provided by long-term portable ECG, which will be denoted mobile ECGI.
