About

After a PhD at KU Leuven, Belgium on 3D echocardiography, I have taken the challenge of a postdoctoral position at INESC TEC under the guidance of Aurélio Campilho. My current project is lung nodule detection, segmentation and characterization on chest CT.

My research interests are medical imaging acquisition and processing, machine learning and applied research for improved patient care.

Abstract
Regional contribution to left ventricular (LV) ejection is of much clinical importance but its assessment is notably challenging. While deformation imaging is often used, this does not take into account loading conditions. Recently, a method for intraventricular pressure estimation was proposed, thus allowing for loading conditions to be taken into account in a non-invasive way. In this work, a method for 3D automatic myocardial performance mapping in echocardiography is proposed by performing 3D myocardial segmentation and tracking, thus giving access to local geometry and strain. This is then used to assess local LV stress-strain relationships which can be seen as a measure of local myocardial work. The proposed method was validated against F-18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography, the reference method to clinically assess local metabolism. Averaged over all patients, the mean correlation between FDG-PET and the proposed method was 0.67 +/- 0.18. In conclusion, stress-strain loops were, for the first time, estimated from 3D echocardiography and correlated to the clinical gold standard for local metabolism, showing the future potential of real-time 3D echocardiography ( RT3DE) for the assessment of local metabolic activity of the heart.
