  1. Influence of atrial contraction dynamics on cardiac function

    In recent years, there has been a move from monoventricular cardiac models to more complex models that incorporate all 4 chambers. However, the biophysical foundation is still underdeveloped, with most work in atrial cellular models having focused on electrophysiological properties. Here, we present a biophysical model of human atrial contraction at body temperature and use it to study the effects of atrial contraction on whole organ function and the effects of remodelling due to atrial fibrillation.

    We review, analyse and compare state-of-the-art relative pressure estimation methods from full field velocity measurements. We also propose modifications of some of the methods, which result in improved estimations compared with the state-of-the-art approaches.
