Research interests

My main research focus is to non-invasively characterize mycoardial tissue. In our cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) center (head: Prof. Julia Mascherbauer), we use novel techniques (T1-mapping) to study alterations in myocardial interstitial space caused by a variety of pathological conditions. These include valvular heart disease, heart failure with an emphasis on heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF), and cardiac amyloidosis. 

Techniques, methods & infrastructure

  • 1.5 T cardiac dedicated CMR, including parametric mapping techniques
  • Dedicated post-processing imaging software
  • TissueFAXS analysis
  • Body composition monitoring device for fluid status assessment
