Inverse Solutions for Localization of Biomagnetic Activity in Heart and Brain
The project focuses on the development of applications of the ME sensors to the solution of the biomagnetic inverse problem of the heart and brain using state-of-the-art dynamical estimation methods based on state space modeling and Kalman filtering. These methods allow the fusion of simultaneously measured MCG/ECG or MEG/EEG data and the tracking of propagating heart or brain activity. The determination of the necessary number, distribution and orientation of the ME sensors through the solution of the aforementioned inverse problems will guide the construction of ME sensor arrays. Additionally, the project will work on the inverse problem of magnetic particle mapping with ME sensors.
