We will present five works at the XXXVII Annual Congress of the Spanish Society of Biomedical Engineering

This year, we will virtually attend the XXXVII Annual Congress of the Spanish Society of Biomedical Engineering (CASEIB) between November 25 and 27. Five of our researchers will defend the work carried out in our research group. CASEIB is a national reference forum for exchanging knowledge and experiences and promoting R + D + i in Biomedical Engineering. This is the BSiCoS group participation program: November 25 “Delay between QT and RR in stress test records as an indicator of…

BSiCoS researchers apply engineering and mathematics to see the real activity of a person’s heart

BSiCoS researchers apply engineering and mathematics to see the real activity of a person’s heart

Researchers from the BSiCoS group, at the Engineering Research Institute of Aragon (I3A), University of Zaragoza, work from Engineering and Mathematics to know the functioning of the heart, see how its activity is when it is healthy and how it changes when a heart attack occurs, provide clinical specialists with the tools that they need to improve patient care. They do it through computation in cardiology, with the creation of a virtual heart that allows the computer to reproduce the…

Automatic quantification of cardiomyocyte dimensions and connexin 43 lateralization in fluorescence images

Automatic quantification of cardiomyocyte dimensions and connexin 43 lateralization in fluorescence images

Cardiomyocytes’ geometry and connexin 43 (CX43) amount and distribution are structural features that play a pivotal role in electrical conduction. Their quantitative assessment is of high interest in the study of arrhythmias, but it is usually hampered by the lack of automatic tools. In this work, we propose a software algorithm (Myocyte Automatic Retrieval and Tissue Analyzer, MARTA) to automatically detect myocytes from fluorescent microscopy images of cardiac tissue, measure their morphological features and evaluate the expression of CX43 and its degree of lateralization. The proposed software is based on the generation…
