The research topic ‘Modelling’ focusses on the development of patient-specific computational models of the cardiovascular system.
Aim in the track ‘Imaging’ is to develop clinical measurement techniques to assess the geometrical, biomechanical and morphological...
Aim in the research field ‘experiments’ is to assist in both clinical decision making and in developing cardiovascular devices and...
The Cardiovascular Biomechanics group provides courses and projects in the bachelor's and master's program.
Furthermore, there are always sufficient projects for students to work on in the research group.
