Research Team


The program focuses on nuclear cardiology, a method using the application of small amounts of radioactive isotopes to view the myocardial function and perfusion.

Main research areas

  • Imaging methods in cardiology using single-photon emission tomography.
  • The development of new SPECT applications in cardiology (risk stratification of sudden cardiac death in patients with heart failure).
  • Research on new protocols for myocardial SPECT to reduce radiation burden.

Application of the results

  • Cardiac perfusion examination in cardiovascular diseases.
  • Ischemia quantification and viability detection for the needs of cardiology programs.
