Cardiovascular biomechanics

Focus on model-based biomechanical analysis of the cardiovascular system, relevant for the pathophysiology, diagnosis, intervention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Institute develops and uses advanced experimental (laser-Doppler, particle imaging velocimetry, ultrasound) and computational (finite elements, spectral methods) techniques in order to validate and analyze models of the cardiovascular system. Application of these cardiovascular models for functional diagnostic imaging (with MRI, Ultrasound and CT), surgical planning and intervention cardiology will become increasingly important in the clinical practice and biomedical industry. The biofluid mechanics research focuses on heat transfer in humans. Areas of interest are individual differences in energy expenditure and temperature regulation, the body temperature distribution during anaesthesia or scalp cooling and the moisture transport in the upper airways.
