The CADscore project aims at diagnosing coronary artery disease using hearts sounds.
The High-speed ultrasound project is focused on improving echocardiography by developing new scanners with frame rates up to 1000 fps.
The project is a collaborative project between Duke University and Aalborg University and is funded by Novo Seed.

Seismocardiography (SCG) is diagnostic modality inspired by methods for the analysis of seismic activity. Using an accelerometer placed on the patient’s chest SCG quantifies the movement of the heart. Out projects aim at developing low cost and easy use diagnostics for various heart diseases.
