Current Research Themes

Our current research focuses on:

  • Parameterized diastolic filling (PDF) formalism

  • Phase plane analysis of diastolic function

  • Phase plane analysis of ventricular-vascular coupling

  • Non-linear analysis of heart function

  • Load independent index of diastolic function

  • Diabetes and diastolic function

  • Mitral annular motion and longitudinal left ventricular diastolic function

  • Segmental diastolic function assessment

  • Diastolic function analysis in the frequency, rather than time domain

  • Constant volume attribute of the four-chambered heart and its implications

  • Kinematic filling efficiency of the left ventricle
