Main project: Ex vivo microfocus computed tomography and contrast-enhanced computed tomography applied to the heart and the heart valves
Funding: ARC
Supervisor(s): Greet Kerckhofs

The goal of my research project is to characterize in depth the morphological properties of heart and especially heart valves. Their characterization is currently limited to a qualitative description and quantitative information is still highly lacking. The full 3D microstructure of healthy and diseased heart valves is investigated using high-resolution computed tomography (microCT) and contrast-enhanced computer tomography (CECT).
