Cardiac arrhythmias can develop complex electrophysiolog-ical patterns which complexify the planning and control of therapies, especially in the context of radio-frequency ablation. The development of electrophysiology models aims at testing different therapy strategies. However, current models are computationally expensive and often too complex to be(More)
Cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) is an effective treatment for patients with congestive heart failure and a wide QRS complex. However, up to 30% of patients are non-responders to therapy in terms of exercise capacity or left ventricular reverse remodelling. A number of controversies still remain surrounding patient selection, targeted lead(More)
We describe a system for respiratory motion correction of MRI-derived roadmaps for use in X-ray guided cardiac catheterisation procedures. The technique uses a subject-specific affine motion model that is quickly constructed from a short pre-procedure MRI scan. We test a dynamic MRI sequence that acquires a small number of high resolution slices, rather(More)
We present an adaptive algorithm which uses a fast electrophysiological (EP) model to estimate apparent electrical conductivity and local conduction velocity from noncontact mapping of the endocardial surface potential. Development of such functional imaging revealing hidden parameters of the heart can be instrumental for improved diagnosis and planning of(More)
Biophysical models are increasingly used for medical applications at the organ scale. However, model predictions are rarely associated with a confidence measure although there are important sources of uncertainty in computational physiology methods. For instance, the sparsity and noise of the clinical data used to adjust the model parameters(More)
This article presents a framework for building patient-specific models of the myocardium, to help diagnosis, therapy planning, and procedure guidance. The aim is to be able to introduce such models in clinical applications. Thus, there is a need to design models that can be adjusted from clinical data, images, or signals, which are sparse and noisy. The(More)
Regulation of regional work is essential for efficient cardiac function. In patients with heart failure and electrical dysfunction such as left branch bundle block regional work is often depressed in the septum. Following cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) this heterogeneous distribution of work can be rebalanced by altering the pattern of electrical(More)
Despite recent efforts in cardiac electrophysiology modelling, there is still a strong need to make macroscopic models usable in planning and assistance of the clinical procedures. This requires model personalisation i.e. estimation of patient-specific model parameters and computations compatible with clinical constraints. Fast macroscopic models allow a(More)
Cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) has been shown to be an effective adjunctive treatment for patients with dyssynchronous ventricular contraction and symptoms of the heart failure. However, clinical trials have also demonstrated that up to 30% of patients may be classified as non-responders. In this article, we present how the person-alisation of an(More)
Cardiac arrhythmias are increasingly being treated using ablation procedures. Development of fast electrophysiological models and estimation of parameters related to conduction pathologies can aid in the investigation of better treatment strategies during Radio-frequency ablations. We present a fast electrophysiological model incorporating anisotropy of the(More)
