Impact of Radiofrequency Ablation Geometry on Electrical Conduction

We are sorry, this position has been filled.

The structure function imaging laboratory aims to develop new optical imaging and processing tools for understanding the structure function relationship of biological organs. The objective of this summer project will be to develop cardiac electrophysiology models of atrial samples with various degrees of therapeutic intervention. Students will carry out the radiofrequency ablation therapy experiments in the laboratory, and image heart samples with an optical coherence tomography system. From the imaging data, finite element models of electrical conduction will be developed. Students will learn experimental techniques, optical coherence tomography imaging, cardiac electrophysiology principles, and the fundamentals of image process.
