Multidimensional, multichannel signal and image processing
The human cardiovascular system functions normally or abnormally based on pressure and flow within blood vessels and cardiac chambers. The future of cardiovascular medicine will see a reliance on implantable pressure sensors that can detect, and wirelessly report, pressures within chambers to external signal receivers, and then to treating clinicians.
This allows for real-time assessment of a person’s cardiovascular function and can expedite treatment before the development of serious consequences. In addition, it will enable remote monitoring—especially for rural and remote populations—and will facilitate specialist interventions from anywhere, including field operations. We have the tools for preclinical and clinical testing of these implantable sensors.
