Special Session #1 - Risk Analysis and Prediction in Cardiovascular Applications

Key targets are:

  • investigation of the interaction between the device and the patient during and after acardiovascular procedure
  • definition of quantitative indicators for improving quality and safety of interventional procedures
  • biomechanical and functional models for interventional procedures
  • identification of ways to support clinicians to become familiarised with ICT based tools and the use of simulation platforms including the results of VPH models
  • evaluation of impact from a techno-economic perspective andin terms of improved patient comfort and safety
  • methods for validation and clinical assessment.

Special Session #4 - The Digital Patient concept: Vision and Early Demonstrations

As an innovative concept, the impact of digital patient to personalised medicine is yet to be clear and hence requires a focused and concerted effort in addressing various questions regarding:

  • User perspectives, use cases and future scenario realising the vision for the “digital patient”.
  • The power and limitations of modern technologies with respect to their applications to digital patients.
  • Clinical acceptability of digital patient in terms of supporting personalised medicine.
  • Potential legal and ethical aspects of digital patients

The Special Session will build on experiences as well as technological and scientific developments stemming from some flagship projects funded by the EU under the FP7 framework programme aiming to bring together researches working in the fields of infrastructures and technologies for integrative biomedical research, ICT for predictive and translational medicine and the VPH at large.
