  • Arrhythmias, resynchronization and cardiac imaging
  • Atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease and heart failure
  • Cardiac imaging

The projects that are underway in the field of familial heart disease are:

  • ANVERSO: Continuous and Automatic analysis of Electrocardiographic Variables associated to the Risk of Sudden Death in patients with Brugada Syndrome. FIS Project
