Ariel H. Curiale, student with the LPI, has successfully presented his PhD thesis last Friday (July 24, 2015). The work was entitled "Contributions to assessment of cardiac failures by echocardiography image processing". His work focuses on the analysis and processing of 3D echocardiographic imaging, being its aim to provide technical support to accurately assess different myocardial failures from ultrasound data of the heart. Results provided are sought to be robust, independent of the intra- and inter-observer variability common in radiological interpretation.
The Project ACUMEN, funded by European Commission 7th Framework Program 2010, has published the first edition of a Ranking of scientists working in Castilla y León Institutions according to their Google Scholar Citations public profiles. This edition was built with data collected during the third week of April 2015 from the public profiles of researchers working at Castilla y León (Spain) Institutions. It is a BETA Ranking of the scientists according to their declared (voluntarily) presence in the Google Scholar Citations database. [Ranking]
La ETSI de Telecomunicación y la EI Informática de la Universidad de Valladolid organizaron de forma conjunta, el pasado 30 de junio en el Edificio de Tecnologías de la Información y las Telecomunicaciones, la primera Jornada dedicada a estudiantes de posgrado en TIC. La jornada iba especialmente dirigida a estudiantes de máster y de doctorado de la Universidad, así como a sus directores.
The LPI has gained a national grant for the research project entitled "t-WiSE-MR: ECG-Free, Free-Breathing Cardiac CINE MRI: High Quality Reconstruction from Subsampled k-space using a Groupwise Motion Correction Paradigm". The grant is funded by Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación (Spain) from January 2015 to December 2017.
A new recontruction method for Single Breath Hold, Whole Heart Cardiac Cine MRI have been accepted for presentation at the 23rd Annual Meeting of the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine: "Single Breath Hold Whole Heart Cine MRI With Iterative Groupwise Cardiac Motion Compensation and Sparse Regularization (kt-WiSE)".
