The EuHeart project (Ref 224495, http://www.euheart.eu/ ) is a 4-year (2008-2012) integrated European project which aims at developing personalized, and clinically validated multi-physics, multi-level models of the heart and great vessels. Those models need to be tightly integrated with signal and image processing tools in order to assist clinical decision making and to help reducing morbidity and mortality rates associated with cardiovascular diseases.
Asclepios is leading a workpackage on radiofrequency ablation for which electromechanical models of the heart are used to improve the planning of radiofrequency ablation lines for patient suffering from atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. This project is lead by Philips Research and also involves two other Inria teams (Macs and Reo) as well as Univ. of Oxford (UK), Univ. of Auckland (New Zealand), Univ. of Pompeu Fabra (Barcelone, Spain), Univ. of Karlsruhe (Germany), King's College London (UK), Univ. of Sheffield (UK), Amsterdam Medical Center (The Netherlands). One plenary and three topical meetings in WP6 have been organized in 2009. The general assembly of EuHeart has also been organized in Sophia-Antipolis on Sept 3rd and 4th 2009.
