CardioFunXion - Towards a novel paradigm for cardiac function assessment from imaging
Towards a novel paradigm for cardiac function assessment from imaging
CardioFunXion provides a platform for industrial-clinical-academic collaboration and will be an example of future partnerships in more efficient and auditable clinical image interpretation tools. All partners bring specific expertise: either they produce workstations (PHILIPS), use them (IDIBAPS, CHUC) or contribute to algorithms to be incorporated into them (UPF). By organising and accelerating exchange of knowledge, experience and tools between the different actors, CardioFunXion will consolidate sustainable partnerships. The project will give early-stage researchers (ESRs) the opportunity to be exceptionally well-placed to become key future contributors to the development of advanced imaging techniques for the assessment of cardiovascular disorders, equipping them with multidisciplinary state-of-the-art skills plus awareness and experience in commercial development, contributing to European scientific and commercial capabilities in an area where technological, scientific and clinical developments are very closely linked.
European Industrial Doctorate (MSCA) in collaboration with Philips Research France.
