Research focus

  • development of new protocols of heart imaging
  • identifying novel imaging biomarkers for the prediction of early myocardial dysfunction

Main goals

  • To test a novel CMR protocol to improve early detection of myocardial injury in Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy patients.
  • To prove that CMR can detect higher prevalence and earlier stages of cardiac involvement in patients with sarcoidosis in comparison with commonly used methods.
  • To find novel CMR and laboratory markers for the diagnosis of cardiotoxicity in oncological group of patients after cardiotoxic chemotherapy.
