CMR has the capability to differentiate myocardial injury applying different techniques. There are increasing numbers of quantitative approaches but an integrative quantitative covering various pathologies is missing. A a non-rigid registration method to superimpose focal images and diffuse fibrosis imaging allowing for pixel-wise comparison could already be developed. Further efforts are focusing on the integration of other pathologies in fused images. The project is based on theoretical phantoms, in vitro phantoms leading to human studies.
