Lay Summary (English)

Lead
Lay summary
Diagnosis of heart disease by ultrasound (Echocardiography) is limited by the fact that many of the analysis criteria are subjective and the experience of the person performing the exam is very important. To render diagnosis more objective and more reliable, this interdisciplinary collaboration of the University Hospital Basel and the EPF Lausanne has the goal to develop and to test new objective analysis methods based on computer vision and mathematical imaging. Methods developed earlier in this collaboration have already found their way into clinical echo equipment used worldwide, and ongoing work has shown the feasibility of several new approaches that are now studied in more detail in clinical data.
