CompBioMed All-Hands Meeting @ University of Oxford
CompBioMed All-Hands Meeting

This year the annual CompBioMed All-Hands Meeting will be organized at University of Oxford 29-30 April. 

Core partners, like LifeTec Group, and associate partners present their work to each other, external partners and any other interested parties.

The end of CompBioMed 1 is approaching, so meeting within workgroups will be organized to discuss completion. 

CompBioMed is a European Commission H2020 funded Centre of Excellence focussed on the use and development of computation methods for biomedical applications. 

This stimulates a cooperation between academia, industry, and clinical environment to allow research models entering the clinic.

'ANGIOSUPPORT'

"At Lifetec Group, we are developing AngioSupport in cooperation with the Catharina Hospital Eindhoven, the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), and Pie Medical Imaging."

AngioSupport is a tool to support the cardiac team to define a treatment plan for patients with coronary artery disease.

These patients have one or multiple severe occlusions in the coronary arteries and for each patient a choice has to be made between coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).

'CHOICES CAN BECOME VERY DIFFICULT'

"This choice is currently based on studying the coronary angiogram and the experience of the cardiac team. However, in case of multiple occlusions, diffuse coronary disease or complicated vasculature, choices in the position, length or diameter for a CABG or PCI can become very difficult. 

Therefore, we are developing an interactive model that can predict the outcome of CABG or PCI to support clinical decision making of coronary interventions."

'a clinical decision tool for the cardiac team'

"AngioSupport fits perfectly with the purpose of CompBioMed.

The numerical models are originated at the TU/e and in combination with meetings with cardiologist dr. Pim Tonino of Catharina hospital and demos given at different hospitals, we created a clinical decision tool for the cardiac team.

AngioSupport already won the first prize at the BME research day of the faculty of Biomedical Engineering at TU/e." (see photo)

"We are looking forward to the CompBioMed all-hands meeting where we can show AngioSupport, gain feedback, and hopefully create partnerships. It will be an interesting two days!"
