Research overview:
This project addresses development of novel diagnostic methods and therapy for cardiovascular disease (myocardial infarction and cerebral infarction) which is a major cause of death in Japan. Research topics may include an auto-pilot system for the optimal treatment of acute heart failure, a new diagnostic method of lethal arrhythmias using computer simulation, a new imaging methodology for characterization of cerebral ischemia and the optimization of therapeutic strategy for stroke.
