Bart Bijnens

PhD Bart Bijnens is an ICREA Research Professor at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF). Technology MSc in Electronic Engineering and PhD in Medical Sciences (1997, Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium). Since 1998 he is an Associate Professor of Cardiovascular Imaging and Cardiac Dynamics at the Faculty of Medicine in Leuven. Since 2007, he is also a Visiting Professor at the University of Zagreb, Croatia, where he resided during 1 year. He has also stayed at St George's Hospital in London (2005- 2006), supervising clinical research. Since Sept 2008, he is an ICREA researcher at the Department of Information and Communication Technologies of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. Works on translational Cardiovascular Pathophysiology, focusing on assessing cardiac function and understanding and recognizing the changes induced by disease and how treatment strategies can be used to modulate these. This is approached by integrating information handling and processing techniques, combined with basic knowledge on cardiovascular pathophysiology, in order to advance clinical sciences.

Quantitative Analysis of Electro-Anatomical Maps: Application to an Experimental Model of LBBB/CRT
  Electro-anatomical maps (EAMs) are commonly acquired in clinical routine for guiding ablation therapies. They provide voltage and activation time information on a 3D anatomical mesh representation, making them useful for analyzing the electrical activation patterns in specific pathologies. However, the... Read more
