Cardiovascular disease (CVD) – University of Copenhagen

Cardiovascular disease (CVD)

CVD is the main cause of death in US and Europe. Atherosclerosis is usually the underlying pathology of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and CVD causes 58 % and 48 % of all death in United States and Europe, respectively. This makes it the main cause of death for both women and men in the United States and almost all countries in Europe.

CVD Projects:

Growth patterns

Morphological Atherosclerotic Calcification Distribution (MACD) Index

Inferring Prognostic and Diagnostic Biomarkers from Lumbar X-ray Images by using Machine Learning Methods

The project is a collaboration between DIKU and Nordic Bioscience Imaging funded by a combination of DIKU, the LImB project, grundforskningsfonden, the research councils, and Nordic Bioscience Imaging.
