Title: Clinical Frontiers in Cardiac Imaging

This talk will present a clinical perspective of the current challenges of cardiac imaging, with emphasis on areas where maximum impact can be made in patient care in the next 10 years. An overview will be presented of the Global Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Registry. This registry currently comprises over 40,000 patient records, and is a valuable tool for quantifying cost effectiveness of CMR examinations.

Title: Addressing Major Cardiac Electrophysiology Issues with Advanced Image Analysis

I will demonstrate how image processing progress, performed in the 1990’s and 2000’s by industry and academia, have dramatically advanced the Electrophysiology (EP) field. I will then discuss some pressing issues challenging both diagnosis and therapy in cardiac EP’s major applications, the treatment of Atrial Fibrillation and Ventricular Tachycardia. I will then suggest how image processing may assist, in combination with advanced imaging, address these challenges.
