New Imaging Approaches for Cardiac Structure and Function

Dr. Kohl’s research focuses on cardiac mechano-electric interactions. He will present novel imaging approaches, developed by his team and collaborators, to explore the crosstalk between these functions and myocardial structure. On the functional side, these range from low-cost instrumentation approaches for fluorescent mapping to space-encoded time domain recordings. For structure studies, approaches include live-heart diffusion tensor imaging, anatomical magnetic resonance imaging, and attempts to move toward a true 3-D histology.
