Cardiovascular Bioengineering mainly focuses on applying engineering techniques such as traditional as well as AI-based signal and images processing and physiologic system modelling to the cardiovascular system. We design and develop new algorithms finalized to: provide computer-based support systems to identify patients affected by cardiac diseases (such as myocardial infarction, Brugada Syndrome, Long QT syndrome, ect) or arrhythmias (such as atrial fibrillation ) from electrocardiographic tracings; define and quantify non-invasive indexes of cardiac risk (such as T-wave alternans and QT interval); monitor cardiac health status in subjects in specific conditions (such as pregnancy; physical activity and mental stress); reconstruct identify and segment cardiac anatomical structures (such as atria and ventricles) from images; and assess associations between cardiac diseases and health problems related to other physiological systems.
