I would like to invite applications for a position of Graduate Research Assistant in University of Malaya for a master project on Medical Imaging (cardiac MRI) and Image Processing.
Synopsis of project:
Characterize alterations of right and left ventricles due to acute myocardial infarction and hypertrophy using motion corrected 3D cardiac modelling
An acute myocardial infarction, particularly large and transmural infarct, can produce alterations in the topography and contractility dynamics of both the infarcted and none infarcted regions of the ventricle. This remodelling can significantly affect the function of the ventricle and the prognosis of survival. The purpose of this study is to quantify both global and region specific changes using motion corrected 3D cardiac modelling to aid clinician in understanding the pathological changes due to heart diseases.
